Is anyone running this setup? If you are, pics would be greatly appreciated.
I would imagine most people have bigger tires if they are SOA. That way they can pick up even more clearance.
I don't have pics but I borrowed my buddy's 33's to see how they looked and 35" look better and fit better.
don't do 33's...they look like crap with an soa. go 35 - 37
33s look like crap on a SOA, mine sat on 33s for about 45 minutes before the 35s went on...no photographic evidence survived.
I ran 33s for quite a while on my SOA, these were actually 305/70R16s which converts to 32.8, but they measured 33".
I had 33x12.5 swapers on my SOA 40 for a while. It depends on how flat your springs are. 35's are a much better bet though. Sorry no pics on this comp although I might be able to scan one or two.
will probably got to 34s or 35s once these wear out. But I like the ride.
I am running 33's muds w/a SOA, 35's would be much better but I have no $$ so s***, send me an email and I will shoot you a pic of my crzr.
if i'm running 35s on a SUA, you NEED to be running 35s....
I'm thinking of going down to 33s....maybe
33's? that is silly
37s or 38s much better, I can't wait to get rid of my lil 35s
The reason I was asking is because (on my never-ending search for an FJ40) I found a 1973 with a Chevy 350 V8, 4 speed transmission, power steering, GM steering column w/ tilt wheel, 10,000lb Ramsey winch, new birfields, disc brakes on all wheels, spring over lift on 35" super swampers. The price is really good and I am trying to negotiate with the seller....however, I just think a SOA with 35's is a touch too big for personal preferences. Will 35's decrease the performance drastically? Is there anything you can do to keep the SOA and make the lift smaller?
I'd be surprised if you notice much of a performance difference w/ 35 vs 33 on that rig. The motor can handle it, the brakes can handle it.... where is the problem?
This may be a stupid question, but can I pull a spring out of the stock packs to get the cruiser a bit lower? If so, how much lower could you make it by doing this? Just getting some ideas....
mine currently sits on 33's SOA. Whats the problem??? Simple- Cash to buy new tires after a motor swap with all the goodies, and self done SOA with billsteins, 55 rears, drivelines, etc...
Do you have any pics on hand?
Here is a cruiser I owned very briefly... SOA 33's wish I still had it...
One of the reasons I went with 33's is that I could stuff the 33's. 36's would rub and pushing 36's even with desmog and headers was a chore. Off roading was all clutch too.
but he's got v8 which will easily push 35's
You can flatten out your springs by pulling a few and adding an add a leaf or something to help and that will make it not so bad on 33's. Personally I am a fan of 33's even though I run 35's. 35's are considered small to some but reality is they are actually pretty big IMO...
