I have narrowed my tire choices to a couple of options & would like to hear everyone's opinion. The tires are going on a '68 RS/SS convertible lowered 2" (Global west springs). The goal is a solid combination of handling, ride quality, & looks (not a g-machine). I'm not really into the rubber band tires (35/40 aspects) & like a little sidewall for a muscle car. Wheels are Wheel Vintique's Billet Rallys:
17X7 wheel in front 4.5 B/S
17X8 wheel in rear 4.5 B/S
Tire options I'm looking at are:
Front: 235/45-17 diameter 25.3 & 4.1" sidewall
Rear: 255/45-17 diameter 26.1 & 4.5" sidewall
All in Firestone Firehawk SZ50EP
if you aren't into the "rubber band" look and want a little bit of sidewall, go with the second set which is a tad bit taller. they will look a little more "proper" on the rally wheel, and will still make the car handle like a new car- or better.
you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.
wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?
