    135's aren't very tall.....155 and 165 seem to be used more. Guess it depends on the application.

    Ran 135 on 15" on my bugs for years back in the 90s. I used 135/15 tires on 15x4.5.
  4. I'm pretty sure these were 135's only about 23 inches tall if I remember right 12696198_10205811923357808_1646722168_n.jpg

    I like a tallish front tire. Seems like Volkswagen tires is a 180 or so and in a 70 series is in the 28-29" tall range.

    I have a friend who's driven his 34 Ford highboy coupe all over the US on 135's on vintage Halibrand smoothies. No problems.
