Tires and Rims
« on: September 24, 2017, 08:39:30 PM »
Since 13 &14 inch tires are getting hard to find has any one switched to a 4 lug  15 or 26 inch setup?

Yeah I have some 15" BBS wheels on me 79. I like them but you need bigger tires to cushion the ride as the larger rims give way to smaller rubber. Also, I have 9" wide rims at the rear and on hard turns, the rubber rubbed the exhaust. Either go with a narrower rim or add a spacers (1/4" did it for me).
I have many Pintos, I like them....

#3. 1980 Sedan I4 Original
#4. 1974 Pangra Wagon I4 Turbo
#5. 1980 Wagon I4 Restored
#6. 1976 Bobcat Squire Hatchback (Restoring)
...Like i said, I like them.
...and I have 4 Fiats.
