I thought I would pass this along. There is one off road tire that might fit the L: BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A 195/75R14 (25.5" diameter).
You said you were running on Firestone Winterforce tires but I don't know the size. If they are the 185/75R14 (25.1") or 195/70R14 (25") or even 185/70R14 (24.5") than the size difference will not likely make a difference. If you are running 185/60R14 (22.9") or 175/65R14 (23.1") than that is enough difference that may very well cause you to rub.

Thanks for the research Darrin! I'm running 175/65R-14 Firestone Winterforce right now. I have to admit, I do like the look of the tread! For comparison:

Some people really like this tire too:

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

Those look remarkably like the General Altimax Arctic which are one of TireRack's highest ranked winter tires.
They also come in a huge range of sizes and can be studded as well.
