I decided that I needed to change my tires because the ones that were on it when I bought it are way too small in my opinion. I wanted fill up the wheel wells and try and lower the rpm's a little more at road speed. Unfortunately when the previous owner hung the side pipes he didn't hang them the same distance from the front tires on both sides. They are also too close to the front tires (actually into the wheel well) and the "new" tires hit the curve of the pipe. I cant put my new front tires on until I take the pipes down and try shorten them by moving the input and output closer to the actual muffler that's under the heat shield, then I'll have to go to the shop and have them re-piped to the manifolds.
Anyway, I took some picts this morning "before" and "after". The original tires are 185/60/14's, I'm replacing them with 225/70/14's, I decided to keep my 14" slots so I wouldnt have to drop another $500 on rims (I'm about hundred dollared out here).
Tire comparison, 185/60 is on the left:
185/60's all the way around:
Another comparison shot:
225's on the back:
It looks pretty good like it sits but it's really squirrely to drive with this setup so I'm going to go ahead and put 225's all the way around, it'll still have some rake to it which is cool.
