Re: 67 wheel and tire size

If the BS is right, 245/40/18 fronts and 275/35/18 or 275/40/18 rear.

If you want to be safe, 225/40/18 and 255/40/18.

265/35/18 should be fine as well, but there's more of a chance of rubbing if your suspension is a little sloppy, or your rear end isn't perfectly centered. It's a little wider, but not as tall.

So...if you already knew the answer, why'd you ask the question and then ask again 24 hours later?
