I have been looking on the frourms for a pic of some westys with the general grabbers 27X8.5R14LT
I cant find pics with them on. If you could put some pics up that would be awesome. I have a 85 westy so it sits up good and i think the bigger tires would look good until I could afford to lift it.

But, but, but...

I didn't get to post those on my hard-working back country rig:

They even look good dirty. Don't mind the POR-15 and epoxy primer. Minor Arizona seam rust - not to be confused with Ohio rust.

Trust me, this ole WBX earns its keep. Faithfully. The Grabbers have traversed more than one running wash - and through the mud up the other side.

Take any internet quote you can find (tirerack.com) to your nearest America's tire or other major chain store and have them match price for you.

I just ordered a set of the 14" grabbers. Discount tire direct is offering a $75 prepaid visa card for a set of 4 AND free shipping.

Applause

Not sure it is less expensive to buy these vs lifting the van though...$120/tire less $50-$75 gift card (I only got a $50 one)...

$107 a tire. No shipping cost. $75 rebate that has already processed. I needed new tires and I like the look of these.
