help im new and i need little off road tires!

Recommended Posts

so im brand new to this whole owning a car thing! i just bought my dream car, an 81 GL wagon but up till a week ago ive only owned a motorcycle and the choice for tires was easy.

 

now that i have 4 awsome little 13" wheels with 4 different little mis matched tires i want to find something as off roadie as possible to put on them.

 

right now im looking at a set of these guys:

 

175/70R13

Firestone Winterforce

 

if anyone has suggestions for tires id be happy to listen!

Planning on staying 13"?

 

I have Toyo 800's, kinda gay little tire, no exciting tread, but do great in the snow and have 100,000 mile warranty, and with a welded rear diff... :)

I have a set of 185 65 15 and they are great, even better with LSD

 

went out today after 6" of powdery snow, lots of fun, testing tires, learning how everything reacts, going up and down steep hills and slamming on the brakes -- it slides straight, just practicing

 

lsd will be in soon :banana:

 

day before, went on crappy rutted class b roads

 

'86 gl-10 t-wag ea81 :D

Wat?

 

'tis just Wat it says it is '86 gl-10 t-wag ea81 :D

 

transplanted ea81 engine, with ea82 carb and intake, swapped injection pump for carb pump, removed fuel sending unit and ran new hose for suction under the carpet, even made a plate from aluminum sheet, drilled a hole in the center, added grommet to run fuel pickup through, because fuel tank bottom is covered in sludge, and standard pickup is plugged, fuel pump controlled by standard system, no re-wiring required

more details available upon request :rolleyes:
