Re: Largest tires stock and offroad ability????
My 1990 Subaru Legacy AWD has BFG 195/65r14's. They kick ass. The old tires were 165/75r14's. This is about as big as you can go w/out rubbing on flexy stuff. The ride is much better with the taller and wider tire. Handles like its on rails. These cars really do suprise me. I have owned 3 Subarus and will always probably have one as my long distance/grocery getter. I have been through mud and water that comes in the doors and snow that the bumper was pushing through. As a matter of fact one night not to long ago a friend and I got the car stuck in a swamp, It cut off after flying across the knee-deep Swamp h2o, She sank, the water came in over the seats, we went out through the windows, engine was under water all night, the next day we came back with a Tractor and pulled her out,I thought she was gone, I let it dry out for about an hour, turned the Key, she turned over,sounded like it was on 2 cylinders, tried it again, she purred like a kitten!!! Changed my fluids and filters, had the interior professionaly cleaned and the rest is history. They will not die!! The car sits higher with the tires. Not that I care too much because its my car not my 89' 4Runner or my 79' ScoutII. But I will never go swamping in my car again!!!
