Default 1987 subaru brat gl mud tire help

Seems I cant find anywhere online or any tire man. website that lists a 13" mud tire...thats not for a ATV.

I was looking to keep the OEM white wheels on my brat and cram 175/80/13" mud tires under the fenders...but they dont seem to be made.

Are they special order or should I just look at moving into a 14 or 15" wheel?


Just a brat newb here so dont be too harsh, I tried to search but there isnt much out there unless a brat has been modded to hell with a huge lift and 30" or bigger tires.


thank,
Marcus

63 views and no answers, damn I knew this would be a hard one.

Might have to find me a set of peugot wheels and up them to 14's and get something for them. I love these OEM white wheels though!

Suggest winterforce, they are pretty good year round and aggressive enough. Heck it is near impossible to get a BRAT stuck on All seasons, they are pretty tough to get stuck on any tire, especially with a rear lsd. winterforce in 175/70/13 work fine.

only 71 each now

Even offroading a BRAT, you don't need a mud tire, they are that good.
