Big back tires have always been the telltale sign of a true ground pounder.

In some cars, erectile it’s easy to stuff the back-end full of rubber without resorting to reconstructive surgery (tubs, cialis moving springs, unhealthy moving frame rails and so on). In others, not so. A good example of a wheel well-restricted car is the1970 Chevy Nova shown in the accompanying photos. Sure, big rubber could fit if the wheel wells were carved out, but it’s also possible to get some big tires under the back without any real drama. You just have to determine how much “tire” can actually fit within the existing wheel well without creating interference on the inside or the lip.

The big factor in running larger tires is getting the right backspace wheels. Summit Racing offers 117,000 different wheel items. You have many choices, but you have to get it right the first time as most shops simply won’t accept an exchange if the wheels show any signs of mounting (can you blame them?).

However, case what concessions do we make to run those big, aggressive tires? That is exactly what we intended to find out with our ’06 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon.

This is a Jeep that serves as a daily driver but also makes regular excursions over the Rubicon Trail, so it must retain good street manners, yet still be capable and reliable off-road. To accomplish these varied tasks, we had added a Highline Kit from American Expedition Vehicles (AEV), which opened the fenders to fit 35-inch tall tires while retaining a stock appearance. As much as we love this kit, unfortunately AEV recently discontinued it in order to focus on the extremely popular JK and Ram truck markets.

In the drag racing community, rx everyone always wants to be bigger and better calling for more modifications and money dumped into a car as a must to go faster.

This time, purchase we join in on the Street Outlaws scene as Chuck takes out the Death Trap Ford Mustang to test out a couple of new things.

Out back, now, instead of the old small tire setup is a big tire setup to give this car all that much more hook to boogie down the street, track, or wherever Chuck wants to kick some ass.
