Double Check: Wheel and Tire Sizes
Hi everyone. Wanted to run by this topic one more time, to ensure that I'm making the right purchase in terms of wheel/tire size.
I currently have 215/70/15's with 4.25" BS on the front (15 1/4" from lip to wheel center and 27 3/4" from floor to lip). I have 235/70/15's with a 5" BS on the rear (17 1/4" from lip to center, and 30 1/4" from floor to lip). I've got 3 leafs in the rear and am looking to replace my front springs, as they currently have spacers in them and believe to be original.
I was looking at going with 215/65/15's on the front with 4.25" BS, and 245/60/15's on the rear, with 4.5" BS. After measuring a bit, I'm having some doubts in terms of overall height, especially in the rear, as another inch and a half or so is going to be taken away with the shorter tire.
My goal is to have both front and back fill the wheel well without being too short or not enough width. I believe that the width is covered, and I've decided to go with 15x7's (4.25" BS) in the front and 15x8's (4.5" BS) in the back. Maybe just thinking too much in regard to the height. Would 60's or going back to the 70's be a smarter choice with both of these in mind?
