Got new rubber today

Not the best pics But I really had to pee

33x12.50 MTZ's

Much better than the Bald granny style TXR's that were on it. Now it just needs to rain

Nice Looks good. Now get some black 15x10's and get them flares back to black and it would look sweet.

acctual tire size is the 305/70/16 same thing as the 33x12.50 though.

They were 1k, free rotations balancing, an flat repair etc etc.
They are surprisingly quiet on the road as well

Tried them out in some black sticky today an they were awesome

Yeah, you will def need to regear... that is alot of tire for a 2.3L. That is after a lift of some sort too.. I would not recomend 33's on a 4 cylinder, but crazier things have been done... you'll need 4.56 at the absolute minimum, maybe 5.13s... it also depends if that 97 is your DD or not...
