what tire size?

Post by dub_love on Wed Jun 12, 2013 1:24 pm

What is a common tire size people run for a lowered bug? I have  68 standard and I plan on lowering it and I heard there may be rubbing issues. And I kinda want to run a small side wall also to get rid of some more sway

My squareback is running 135's up front and 165's in the rear. But I'm about to get some 165/45/15's for the front and I will never rub again. Giggity.
