    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. :)

    Oh...and bump! :D

    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:

    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!

    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?
