New tires on my Z/28

I bought a new set tires for my 69 Z back in March, and I finally dug it out for a quick ride today. I went with BFG's 225x60's in the front & 235x60's in the rear. It looks like it may have lowered the car a tiny bit over the 215x65's I pulled off it.

What do you think, better or not?

Old tires...



new tires...

Re: New tires on my Z/28

Thanks guys, I really like the new look of the 60 series tires over my old 65's. The only tires I would liked better on it was a set of vintage E -70 15s Bias plys, but holly cow, they are pricey.

Thanks Again,
