    What size radial tires do you run on your lowered AD Chevy? Please include pics. I'd prefer ones on stock 16 inch wheels.

    You Might try the AD Group but if I remember there is not much on the subject.

    Other sizes would be ok, I can figure tire diameter and convert to comparable 16.
     
  6. I'm going to run stock 16 inch wheels but haven't bought tires yet. Interested in this also...

    I'm running 205 60 14 on the front and 255 60 15 on the back right now but will go to 215 75 15 all around when it goes back together as I'm going from the 80's hot rod truck look to a low but fairly level custom look this time.

    I think this tire is a 215 15.

    195 or 205 14 on the front and N 50 14 on the rear in this photo.

    I'm running 235/75/15's. That puts them at about 29" in height and 9.25" in width.

    Pardon the O/T wheel, I'm working on it...

    Well I just put some Kelly 225/75r15's on the back this week due to some rubbing on the inHer fender well. Put them on my 7" wide Cragar and I think they look great minimal side wall hanging over the rim.

    I just bought 215/65-15 fronts and 255/70-15 rears. The rears look massive on 8" rims. Trukcs not together yet but the wheels are bolted on...

    The rims are mid to late 60's 6-hole truck wheels, (same pattern as the stock AD wheels) 4" backspace which is a bit much for the front (puts the tire too close to the tie rod ends) so I run 1" spacers on the front. They are perfect for the back since I've got a '68 truck rear end in there with 3:08 gears and it's a tad wider than the stock rear end.
