Since this is 240bricks, I figured I should get myself a 240. So I got this 244 GL 1981.
It's B23A and M46
I know it's rusty, but its my daily driver so I really don't care.

Here is some pics for you:

it has potential....it'll be much nicer when you get some "real" wider/proper tires on it :)

I love stretched tyres, so I'm not gonna buy wider tyres

cars with stretched tires always look so stupid when they're as high as yours is. front needs to come down 2 inches or so and the back needs to be at least 4 inches lower..

Yes it could be a little lower, but it's a DD, and it still rides sooth on the road and not bouncing all around. But I'm thinking of lowering it at the back, cus it's factory hight at the back.

i would do one inch in the front, maybe 1.5 inches in the rear. my front is slammed on all stock suspension and it rode fine till i put stiffer stuff in the rear(just have to watch out for raised manholes and speedbumps). i think the rear could use a taller sidewall, maybe next time

It's V70/S80 16x6.5" steelies, that have been flipped, then widened on the inside.
Tyres are 215/40

For a DD, I'd leave the front right where it's at, and drop the back 1" or so. 'Spose it's all subjective...

Thanks you for posting this ... I've been looking for a rough idea of what 16's will look like on my 140. Thumbs up. :clap:

It would just require a little extra attention to road conditions, which is never a bad thing.

It's not the actual ride hight that would be a problem, it's the lack of suspension travel on the stock suspension.
