    I agree, fatter tires or fatter tires and rims. Rake is great. Need air dam in front? Seen someone selling them on this site.

    I think it looks great the way it is!! Maybe, possibly, eventually, down the road, some bigger wheels/tires in the back. If you want. Up to you. Just my opinion.

    I've got 235/60/14 in the rear which are slightly over 9 inches and 245's or 255's would have been really close to the leaf springs. Maybe some off set rims and or 15's, and spring movement down the road. 205/70/14 front.

    I thought about something taller but I calculated that with the 235/60/14 at about 24.5 inches tall with the 3.91's I would cross the line right at 6000 which should be just a few 100 rpm over its peak. Up front I adjusted the torsion bars at 25 inches from ground to fender lip. I have over 2 inches of upward travel for weight shift to the rear when I get on it. The rear springs are replacements that are about 3/4 inch higher than stock.Not sure what brand they are, apparently not long before I bought the car someone completely rebuilt the front end and put new leaf springs on it.

    Im a big fan of BFG TA's. Over the years I have run a lot of different tires and for price, wear, and traction they are hard to beat.
