I like the skinnies on the front hog meats in the back look and I am looking for a skinny radial that will work with a 68. I have ralleys that were cut to 5 inches but I want radials all the way around. Anyone with ideas?

I just bought a new set of wheels and tires. I like to run 165sr15's that is the perfect tire for the "skinny" look. There are several brands out there that will work. khumo, michelin, dunlop, etc...

If you check out the pictures in my link you will see what the 165s look like.

I run a 15x4 Billet Specialties with a 195/75-15 Yokohama. They were the only tires I could find in that size.

Very very nice stance and look. Precisely what I'm looking to have with my '69. Just have to figure out what size wheels and tires will fit or what I'd have to do to my stock suspension. Don't want the front too skinny as I like to drive it around town every chance the weather cooperates.
