Question

Anybody out there have a suggestion for a good all around tire (brand and size) for stock 15x7 wheels on a stock 69 Camaro? Thanks!

Budman93,

BF Goodrich is a good all around tire. You can get them from SAM's club and places like that cheaper than tire shops.

The most common sizes are 225/60/15 and 235/60/15. I have 235's on 15x7 and 245's on 15x8 on rear.

I agree with Jaybird, the BF Goodrich T/A radials are hard to beat for the price, and they look great too. I run 255/60/15's on the rear and 235/60/15's on the front, 15x7 Ralleyes.......KZ

You may want to look at the Yokohama AVS Intermediate. My 68 has the 235/60/15's on 15 x 7 rallys. The rear is fine, could even go wider. The front really depends on your suspension set up. If you are using stock springs that are not sagging and your suspension is in good shape, you probably won't have rubbing issues.

The Yokohama's are a little more expensive, but for the price I think they are a good weekend warrior tire. I have heard that they wear out pretty quick though. If your car is a daily driver, you may want to weigh the extra cornering ability vs. frequency of tires changes.
