Hello All,

I would like to get some feedback on the tire selection for a Bugeye. Mine currently has Road King Grenadier P155-80 R13's on the front and Michelin XGT4 P175-70 R13's on the rear. This is what I want to know:
<ul type="square"> What are the modern recommended tires for the bugeye?
How wide can the standard rims handle?
How wide can you go before you have interference with the body?
How big can you go before you have interference with the body? [/list]
Looking forward to your responses.... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/patriot.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/england.gif

I am running 195/60 x 13s on my lowered Bugeye.
They do stick out a little but they don't rub.
My other Bugeye has 165/70s, no problem.
and I did have 205/40s (or were they 205/50s?) on a Bugeye I sold but they were a bit too low and weird looking.
I like the 195/60s.
