    I swapped the 6.70x16's on the rear for 7.50x16's - they fit, add some top end speed, and - I think they look good. The fronts are 5.00/5.25x16 - I ordered some 5.50's. IMG_3395.jpeg IMG_3396.jpeg IMG_3397.jpeg
     
  2. Yeah, that's perfect. Same tires I had on a 40 Tudor.

    Thanks Dan. Did you run the 5.50's in the front as well?

    I don't think you want to go bigger on the front. It looks just right the way it is. The 750's look great and fill up the fender nicely. Good job. Nick

  5. No, I had the 5.00/5.25 tires, but 550's would have been better probably, fill up the wheel opening a little more.

    I think it looks great like that. Keep the smaller tire on the front. It's got a perfect rake and the tires fill up the fenders nicely.

    Looks great. The 7.50's give it a great stance. Myself, I'd stick to the smaller tires on the front though, as it gives a good rake. Awesome looking roadster.
