Re: 4Q Tirez

>Has anyone tried to stuff a 215 tire under the 4Q's fenders?

The former owner of the 1986 4KCSQ tried to do so. The tires are 215/60 R14.
I would not recommend it. They rub on the wheel wells in tight spaces. And
the fact they leave little clearance means they kick up mud and other sorts
of things onto the sides of your car. And if your suspension in soft, it is
much easier to bottom out your car on the city streets.
The traction/handling benefits are not enough, in my experince, to out weigh
the potential headaches.
