I want to go to something similar to the radius of a 215/75R15. It has 225/60R15s on it now, which is close to the radius of the stock 205/70R15s. Anyone know the absolute maximum size tires that will fit? 215/75R15s would be acceptable, but I'm also looking at 225/70R15s or 225/75R15s....maybe even 235/70R15s. One site says the biggest tire that will fit is "P215s," whatever that means.

Oh I just popped off the front bumper, I have a sticker license plate ready and I'm trying to find a way to mount the indicators back on.

I think it looks NICE but my whole family hates it...too bad for them

Doesn't the internet have a Samurai forum?

Yeah, but it has dedicated Miata forums too :P

I'm assuming a 30-31" tire will fit stock, but I don't know.

Yup, I've made that gripe too...but you really stick out like a sore thumb around here if you say you don't like me otters. I think the problem here is that you're asking how big you can fit on a stock Sammy...why would you leave it stock if you want to fit bigger tires???

One of the 4x4 magazines had a Samuri with the street rod replacement headlights with integral turn signals along the bottom of the light.

Looked cool, but the lights were probably over $100.

You can buy some of those cheap round turn signals from Tractor Supply and mount them behind the grill.

I mounted the indicators above the "bumper bar" with some electric fence wire.

My guesstimations based on how much room is available at full lock suggests 30-31" as well...225/75R15s look like a good bet. I've seen 235s/70R15s on stock sammy wheels, they're so wide there's practically a fold where the sidewall meets the tread...maybe they're too much.
