You need to fender cut too. 235/75/15s (28.8" tall) required a bit of front fender surgery on SOTE.

'82 Eagle Wagon (Brown Betty) 4.2L/727/NP229 and soon 8.25 rear axle and non-vacuum 3.08 front to match. 235/75/15 tires. It's down to minor body work (someone creamed my driver's door but I have another in good shape) almost rust free and interior work (seats are worn and carpet torn). $2000 but about to go up due to more work being done.

The 235 tires probably look the best on an Eagle if you're willing to cut the rockers and fenders back a little, but I think 215 BFGs would look awesome. I love my "stock" 205/75/R15 BFG Radial T/As, but they could be a little bigger. I certainly wouldn't sacrifice power for 31 inch tires, I need all I can get out of this thing lol!

I had planned on going to at least 235/75/15s, which is why I had lower ratio axles. Too bad I won't be able to finish it unless I sell something else.
