Wheel and Tire Packages
#1
runninpony 
I would like suggestions on tires and rims for my 1972 Convertible.  I personally like The Magnum rims and BF Goodrich tire packages but I am open to suggestions. My budget is $1,500 or less.
Questions:
1. What is the best quality Magnum package?
2. What other wheel and tire combinations do you like?
3. Is it better to order tires and rims separately and have a local shop balance and mount them? 
4. What tire sizes look best for front and back?

I just put AR torque thrust on mine. 15x10 295/50 in back, 15x8 235/60 in front. Rear wheel has 5" bs.[Image: 6af66a939af61df64015f5f66d2cbbcf.jpg]

i customized my magnum 500's over the winter by fabricating adapters to mount billet spinners for a unique look. I followed it up with a set of Mickey Drag radials on the rear (BFG'S on the front) so I could finally put the power to the pavement. Have gotten good reviews so far. What do you think?

Sweet looking vert Beersdontcount!! thumb   

I have the Magnum 500's.

1. What is the best quality Magnum package?
Lots of debate there.  I have wheel vintiques 10x15's on the back with 5" BS 15x8's on the front.  They look nice but I had to deburr the valve stem holes when they arrived.


2. What other wheel and tire combinations do you like?
American Racing Torque Thrust D's.

3. Is it better to order tires and rims separately and have a local shop balance and mount them?
That's what I did.  Got wheels from Summit, got the tires from a local shop, mounted & balanced for free.
 
4. What tire sizes look best for front and back?
I have BFG's 15-295/50's on the back, 15-225/60's on the front.  Like 'em a lot.

500s with T/As always work. I'm using 15/7s 245/60 up front and 15/8s 255/60 out back.

I have Mickey Thompson ... ok in the dry, dangerous in the wet 

I've been wondering what Goodrich are like in the wet ....or Cooper Cobra's

Im looking at getting some Torque Thrust D's. 15" is all im interested in, but I dont know what back spacing. I see some info above that 5" is good on the back. Is that also good on the front? Also what widths will clear everything?
