I have a 1976 Crysler Cordoba, I am planning to get 14's and Homeboyz juggested 175/75 tires. My brother installs tires and he said that the car is too heavy for the tires. Onthe title for my car it says it weighs 3,975 lbs. Would it be ok to put these tires on my car?

IS YOUR CAR LOWERED OR STOCK HEIGHT ... DO YOU PLAN ON LOWERING IT OR LEAVING IT FACTORY HEIGHT A 175-75-14 TIRE IS ABOUT 24 INCHES TALL ,,,,, IF YOU ARE LEAVING IT STOCK YOU CAN GO WITH A LARGER TIRE ... JUST MY .02 ....

SOME COOL STUFF
