Not a chance. Especially 13.5s. You wouldn't be able to turn, if they would even mount. Simply isn't enough fender clearance on these. The only thing I've seen something that big on would be like a ZR2 with a SAS swap and body lift on top of that...

With your setup you can probably get 33's to fit. Even thats pushing it.

Here is an example of what 37s would look like on mine with 1 to 2 inches of suspension travel avalible. I don't have a body lift so a 3 in. would give you ~5 in. of travel on this pic.

I'm guessing since they are six lug they are for a fullsize? What year? Even if they would fit you would still have a problem turning them, which leads to lower gears etc. etc.etc.

Torsion bar tweaking can gain you 1-1.5 inches. If you get more it means your torsion bars were sagging or low from the factory (typical with the Sport package).
205's (standard tire size)
235's (optional tire size)
30's should clear all but the ones with sagging torsion bars
31's should fit with minor trimming/reshaping, anything larger needs lift.

Tire Sizes with 2-3" of lift
31's should fit, if using stock wheels expect the tires to rub on the frame and sway bar at full lock
32's should fit with minor trimming
33's should fit with massive trimming

Tire sizes with 5-6" of lift
32's should easily clear, if using stock wheels expect the tires to rub on the frame and sway bar at full lock
33's should fit with minor trimming
35's may fit with massive trimming

Tire sizes with 7-8" of lift (With 2" Body Lift)
33's should fit easy
35's should require minor trimming with 8 inch wheels, more if 10 inch wheels are used
36's would require massive trimming to be done.

9" lift (SAS)
37" tires should fit easy
38.5" tires may fit with a body lift or trimming.

I couldn't imagine the front end taking those tires. I had a 85 with 33 12.50s on it. With a beat 2.8 and I was breaking cv joints like crazy

Thus the SAS conversion
