Morning All, I believe that someone at the Gathering (Bandon), had switched fron the 12" rims and tires on thier rig , to 13 or ? I would like to do the same!! I am going on a trip in June and would like to have these installed by then. O.K., who was it? This is on my Fiber Stream.

This is on ... Fiber Stream.
The best I could figure to do was 5.30 x 12, replacing the standard 4.80 x 12.


Other Bandon attendees?

I can't comment on what fits the Fiber Stream, but here is a tyre size table from Carlisle that shows the different tyre sizes:

Carlisle Sport Trail

So 175/80-13 would be about 1.5" higher than 4.80-12 and a little over 1" higher than a 5.30-12. You would also need to have at least that much spare clearance under your wheel wells now at full bump if the new tyres are not to foul.

Hi
I am still dying to know exactly what info you got regarding this wheel/tire change.
I would like to know if it is a possible mod or not.

The Fiberstream looks just silly sitting on the tiny tires it was born with....at least to me.

Thanks
Ed
