i'm looking for some thoughts on tires and wheels for my 1950 chevy truck. the truck is in my avatar and i'll attach some pictures to help out. i'd like it to look more like a traditional truck than a hot rod. i like the steel wheels with the 'Chevrolet' center caps. right now i run Halibrand style big-n-littles, 15x10 rear and ~15x4.5 front. what has me going back and forth over tire size and selection is my new engine. i built a 406 sbc for it last winter. its pretty strong, 226/234* @.050" hyd. roller cam, AFR Aluminum heads, RPM intake, 9.5:1 c.r., fender well headers, that sorta thing. i dont know what kind of power it makes but it certainly can be a handful. the transmission is a built th350 with a shift kit and 26-2800 stall. the rear end is a Ford 8.8 with a 3.27 gear and an auto-locker (lunchbox style) with a single ladder bar. that being said, i was wondering what kind of tire size would work well with this. the truck is currently lowered 2", but i've considered raising it to stock height. also, i'm still using the stock front axle because i like it. i've swapped on the disc brakes with updated bearings and such. at any rate, i'd like the tire to fill the wheel well more, something in the 28-30" range. the tires could remain mismatched with the larger in the rear or they could be the same size. i'm just looking for some ideas. i'm running radials now and i like them, although i've never ran a bias ply. current sizes are 295/50/15 and 165r15. thanks for your thoughts. -Ben.
