Front runners for street use?

Do you think 6" wide tires on a 5" wide rim are to small for street use? It's not for a daily driver, but a weekend cruiser only.

Thanks !!!!!!! A

Re: Front runners for street use?

No, I used to run 15x4 centerlines with VW bug tires on my blue '69 Camaro and on my '57 Chevy. Never had a problem. They were my DD.

paint a white car black, that is a change
paint black strips on a white car, that is detail

Politicians should dress like race car drivers.
At least then we'd know who their corporate sponsors are !!
