Rally America 15X5"(3" b.s.) w/205-75R15 front(may switch to 215's) and 15X8"(4-1/4" b.s.-need 4-3/4" for more clearance) w/255-70R15 rear. Going to get new or re-arched rear springs and raise the rear a tad.
235/70 Vogues, baby.
anybody have pics of 5.60-14's....a plus if mounted on 7" wide rim??
Does anyone have pics of open wheel cars running all the same tire size, it seems to me I remember seeing pictures from the 40's of cars like that , is it still done at all? does it look horrible? anyone got pics?

6.00 - 16 front and rear. Have been wanting to go with some big and littles, looks like 7.50-16 and 5.50-16, or 6.00-16 on front?
255-70-15 on a 7" american with 5.60-15 re-po Firestones on 4x15 Summit wannabe Halibrands.

5.60-15 and L78-15 Coker Classics, 5" and 6" reversed in rear.
JeffreyJames, thank you for starting this thread. I think it finally made up my mind on what tires to go with for the front of my A V8.
Let's keep this going. I'd love to see more rods with slicks on the rear!
Swapped-on new 30x10x15 Radirs on original 1960s 15x8 Torq Thrusts last summer. Fronts are still 15x6 '60s TTs and 6.40 Silvertowns.
Cut, That is a thing a beauty!
Thanks, and it's FUN to drive.
Here's a pic from the '60s someone posted on another thread but it shows a killer wheel/tire combo:
Same size new wheels. 15x6 Salt Flats with 8.20-15 and 15x4 with 5.60-15
hr - good looking sedan. I like it.
on my old sedan and sport coupe i had 6.10-16s in front and 7.50-16s in back, with 5.4in width wheels. i like taller skinny tires on open wheeled cars...
and on my my truck now i have 7.10-15s
Picture request - Mickey Thompson sportsman fronts. 28x7.5 or 28x8.5.
Only 2 cars in the thread with these fronts, and pics are really dark. I'm not likin em based on catalog picture. But I have wide sportsmans on the back already and need a bias ply front without a pie crust sidewall.
Or a good pic of a pro-trac p215/75 please!
Here you go:
Mark, you must create quite a spectacle when you pull your toys out on the lawn to play with!
No pic but 225/75/15 Hankook Dynapro AT rears and 185/60/15 Bridgestone Potenza RE080 front. On ratty brushpainted gloss red Mitsubishi 15x6 steel rims
looking for some 12.5x29x15's
On the '31, the plan is 215/55R18 + 275/60R15
On the Minor, undecided but, I fear, probably not very HAMBable sizes on 16" steelies ...
Car looks good. I like the tire combination. Can you show a view from the front? I have some 15x4 American Salt Flats and I don't like them on my car. Too much brake shows. How wide is your axle? What kind of brakes?
