Tire and wheel recommendations...again
Hi all, I'm new to the site. I read about it on another forum while I was looking for info and it sounded very informative. I hate to keep beating this same horse but... I'm finishing up my '67 sport coupe that I've owned for 30 years. I did some nice upgrades but need some tire and wheel advice before I drop $600 on rubber. It has the original 327 in it, bored .030, 2.02 heads,Edelbrock, rollers, Manley, Pink, Comp cam, Holley 650, Hooker, etc.. Now to the tire issue; I have a disc brake kit up front with 2" drop spindles, poly bushings, Bilstien shocks. In the rear I have a Hotchkis sport suspension kit with 1-1/2" lowered springs and Bilstiens. Wheels are 15x7x3-1/2"BS Ralley up front and 15x8x5"BS Ralley's in the rear. I plan on using Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/T 215/70R15 front and 255/60R15 rear. Has anyone used this combo? I measured it up and it looks good, even thinking I could go 275 in the rear. Any advice or comments from the group would be greatly appreciated. I also have a great business idea, a store where you can "try on" tires like you would shoes! This sucks trying to figure out sizes with a tape measure.
