Tires now are 185/14/70 can I put on 205/15/70 instead?

Where did this idea come from? Have you considered the diameter difference of the 2 size tires? The 205 if it was changeable may rub in the wheel well or make clutch wear increase?

Now a days they can cut the wheel well and flare it and slap on a staging clutches to fit any rubber and rim to it with adapters

Its Hell on wheel and not in the box-lol

Wer'e just oldtimers that didn't get this type of goodies to play-
