Say what??? Why would you put that skinny durn tire on a Spridget??
You can actually get a 175 on a std rim, but they will wear in the
certain faster. I better bet is to use the lowest profile 165 you can
find. I have 175's on my Midget, but I also have 4.5" rims where as
the Roystyles are normally 4". With a car that handles as well as a
Spridget, put as much rubber on the road as you can. a 155/80 is a
tall skinny tire. Yea I know they are closer to original in looks,
but if you want original, find a bias ply tire (bet ya can't except
for lots o' bucks from Coker or the like).
Go get a low profile 165 or 175. The 175 "may" rub, depending on the
Good luck, have fun, and look for wider wheels.
