31s without a regear on a 4cyl is a bad idea imo

no i said that as a blanket statement because i was so pissed off at the time :P


and the insurance company is stalling on me because i dont have collision on my side so i have to wait for a definitive statement from them after theyre investigation before she can get fixed on the honda drivers tab

The idiots that drive civics would be the ones that say their older civic is "fast as **** dawg" with it just having a big exhaust and intake. It needs a turbo to be anywhere fast.

Yeah I had 235/75/15s on my old B2200 beater and they didn't work out too well. Slightly smaller than a 31, but a bit bigger than the stock 195/75/14.

Totally messed up the gearing, could barely get up hills, had no acceleration.

4 cyl + big tires = fail

no, I had 235/75/15, they were like 29". They were a big tire for that truck. No way a 335 ever would have fit on a B2200.

Let's try not get this locked. It's not the car (or even a fancy car) itself it's just the A-hole driver with a small package.

The valence is only $40-$50.

So another $50 for you!!!

I say you get your lift and some decent tires with the extra.
