Post your Pics: 15x6 front wheels with Tire Size ...

Hi Guys ...

I'm not sure what tire size to run up front ...

I need to get some tires on my 15x6 torq thrust II wheels and would like to know what you're running ...

Front,
Stock Ride height with new 90/10 shock and new stock length springs ...

Rear,
Stock Ride height with new 70/30 shocks, CalTrac split monos, and 15x8 wheels with 275/60/15 Mickey Thompson ET Streets ...

Nice Doug ... What's the rears? ... and is that stock suspension height?

Thanks

Re: Post your Pics: 15x6 front wheels with Tire Size ...

I need to freshen up on the geometry or ride height of our cars from front to back ...

With me running 275/60/15's in the rear (60 mm sidewall height) and if I then ran the 205/65/15's up front (65 mm sidewall height) ...

Would this tend to make the car appear to be sitting a little higher in the front?

I'd like to have a slight rake with the rear sitting a tad higher than the front ...

205 = mm wide (25.4mm = 1") so approx. 8" side wall to side wall.
65 is the aspec (or side wall from rim to tread) so times by 2 and add 15" for wheel.

205/65/15 = 8 wide x 25.5 tall (approx) and a 60 would be about 25" tall.

Thanks
Thanks for the compliment.
285/60/15 SH McCreary's (yes they rub on hard turns and off camber bumps)
Original rear mono leafs (now Z28 style 4 leafs due to mono's getting bent)
Z28 coils front (Moog replacements)

The front looks slightly high due to launch (pic) and I hope to hang a wheel next trip to track (new combo,maiden voyage 24 March)

Ok ... Cool Doug ...

So the 205/65 >>> 25.5" tall ... teh 205/60 >>> 25" tall ... and I beleive the 275/60 is 28" tall ...

This should give a slight rake ... and look nice ...
