Tim- I've ran 175/70 13's on my earlys for years- I wont run any other tire size, even if I could get them. The handling improvement is noticeable even at normalspeeds, and your ground clearance will still be higher than on many new cars. The only real downside is that your overall gearing drops alot. You will be reallyhappy with those tires if you run a 3.27 or 3.08 (I'm running a 3:08) ring and pinion, not so happy with a 3.55 r/p.Kevin NashEarly Turbo daily driver
