Hey Guys,

 

I know the pug question has come up a lot. But after a search I haven't been able to come up with an answer. I'm thinking about getting 14" pugs for my '80 brat. But I don't want to modify anything to get them mounted without rubbing.

Is that possible? and what size rubber do I have to get?

 

Thanks,

Klaus

Yeah, those 185/60/14s suck for anything other than roads. Im getting me some 195/70/14s as soon as i can afford it.

It seems like it really wouldn't make much sense to go with 14's. I could just get some 185/70 13 or 185/80/13 instead.

What do you guys think?

THe 14s do give you a few more tyre options. You can find much bigger tyres for them.

Mastercraft tire has a 195/70/13 that would give you more height, width and would work for you I do believe. Check it out.
