    Anyone have any pictures of fenderless 29 roadster a framed highboys with 5.50x16 7.50x16 and 5.50x16 7x16. I am torn between these sizes. I have a massive picture collection for reference but non with tire size info.

    I even keep going between the 4.50x16 and the 5.50x16 on the front. Some 29's look good with the 4.50x16 7.50x16 combo but the ones that do look good seem to have a kick in the rear that makes it look better stance wise (that massive big and little combo on a stock frame seems a little mis proportioned?)
     
  6. :Dthe rears are P255/65R16 and the fronts are P225/75R15

    That would definitely keep the cost of a build down, as long as the flux capacitor was in good shape.:D
     
  16. Mine has 6.50/16 rear with 6.00/16 front. I might go up to 7.00/16 rear and down to 5.50/16 front, but I am undecided yet because I have not seen that combo on a '35 -'36 on this thread yet.

    Jeff, That truck looks good with what ever shoes it has on. The casual every day look the dressed up look and the running shoes it sports . They all look great.

    Great thread everyone! I spend all day long talking about these tires on the phone or at shows and rarely get to see them installed. Thanks for the pictures, the different combos look great!
