Will it physcially fit on the vehicle? Yes.

Will it be anywhere close to the proper diameter and load capacity for the vehicle? No. That size is OEM for a Ford Focus ... that should give you an idea of the size and weight of car they are made to support.

Well, if you like the small tire in the huge fender look, then go for it.

For strip use, I use 165/80/15, but only 1/8th mile. Would be a little concerned on 1/4 mile track.

The fronts are spare wheels with the 165s installed. The rears are spare centers, mounted into 8 inch rims by Stockton Wheels. I will install custom drag wheels this Winter.

That's an interesting look, kinda makes the car look like an Impala ss (the good years) in the front...

Shipping out to basic training for the army on april 12th!
