Tire Recommendation

I'm looking for a tire size that will give me the most foot print or grip for cornering.
My rims are steel and 15x7 4.25 all four.
My tire of choice are bfg's.
Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

Re: Tire Recommendation

David,I have the exact same rim size as you on all four corners. I am running BFG 245 60 R15 radial Ta's.The overall tire diameter is 26.6" and the contact patch is about 8.5''. They don't rub and are the same size on all four corners,which is nice so that I can rotate them as I need to. The car handles very well and the tires grip the road well, even in heavy rain. I would recommend them. There are not many choices out there for 15'' tires. I have alway run BFG's on all of my camaro's without any negative experiences.

Re: Tire Recommendation

Great thanks, the tires I have which I forgot to mention are 225/60 so I'm not too far off.

Re: Tire Recommendation

I had 235/60-15's back in the early 90's on mine and it worked well. Prob is 15" tires kinda suck cause nobody makes a high performance sticky 15" tire. But if you want to keep it old school...
