Tire sizes
#1
Okay....BlackBetty needs some new feets. I've got 225/60's at the moment but with the car show coming up... I gots to buy new'ns.

So what do you guys run? I've seen some set ups I really like but cant see the tire size of course in pic's. I'm think'n 225/60's in front and the 235/50 is the same height as a 225/60 but has the width I want. Gotta order them quick... all of you chime in!! even with pic's so I can see what your babies look like.

235/60x15 front on 8" rims
275/60x15 back on 10" rims

the 275's on back fill up the rear wheel arch real good.

I have 245/60/15 on the front, and 275/60/15 on the rear of mine, on 15x8s. You can fit allot more rubber under your car if you want to.

I would go with 245/60s up front and 265/275/60 out back.No smaller than 235/60s up front.

That's exactly what I would recommend.
Don't go smaller than 245 with an 8 inch wide rim. It'll look skinny.

Here's a pic of mine with 255/60/15 on 15x7 rims on all 4 corners, before the lowering and 18inch rims:

X3 on the 245 / 275 combination. They make the car look muscular. If I stick with 15" rims it's the way I'm going.

By the way: There's plenty of room in the back. I got 285 now and room to spare.
