I've been wanting to see the same thing bc I just picked up a 80' Coupe Deville and I couldn't decide wether I was gonna go with 13's or 14's . But after reading several post and looking at some pics I'm gonna get my grind on and go with the 13's. I still would like to see a side by side comparison of the 2 sizes.

I THINK 13'S LOOK THE BEST ON A LOWRIDER, 14'S DONT LOOK TOO MUCH SMALLER THAN THE STOCK 15'S. BUT 13'S GIVE YOU THAT REAL GANGSTER/LOWRIDER LOOK! :puffin:

Whats not safe about 13's?

And Tuna_Sammich you have a fucking nice car :cool:

your shit will be sliding all over the road, your tires will go bald faster, more weight on them when your pulling corners your shit will be eating that rubber like nothing.

when you try to stop abruptly all your shit is gonna do is slide down the street.

oh and in the rain or slick roads forget about it.

if you still dont understand why there not safe you shouldnt own a set.

14s look fine, and ride nice. if your going more for show or only a weekend cruiser then 13s is the way to go. 14s dont look huge at all. not on a lac.

ya 13's and rain sucks. I used to roll my 64 on 13's in the rain all the time though. i guess it was a really wet summer and some water wasnt gonna stop me from enjoying my ride.

these 13's are Vogues though so a little taller and wider than the 155/80 and great tread. no problems with sliding yet. sudden stops are another story though, specially when bouncing on bumpy roads :biggrin:

Hows the song go "LOWRIDER DRIVES A LITTLE SLOWER"! and for that reason 13's are safe to me! Im not gonna go fast enough to make a sudden stop or just slam on the brakes! A lowrider has an excuse to drive slow! So I do! :biggrin:
