We are always looking for small details to make these cars just a little bit more exciting … and this week, we wanted to point-out the superb tires we used on the Nevada Beige Bugeye called “Jesse.” These Dunlops are a personal favorite, as they wrap the tread so nicely, and look just that little bit extra macho. They seem to fill the well wells just perfectly. This is one of the little details that makes Jesse a favorite.
These 165 series tires are 80 series, a bit tall, and you may have to trim the front of your nose a tad for clearance on turns. (This is common with larger tires, and somewhat routine our shop.) If you are uncomfortable with this, then go with 155/80s that we sell here. Noses sometimes move aft from old crash damage, and so nose trimming is common regardless of the tire size you choose.
These are also the tires that I have on my personal Bugeye Gumby. If your tires are out of date (and most of them are!) consider ordering a spiffy set of new shoes by clicking here!
