Another tire question

Just got my Foose Knuckles, 17x8 all around. I was looking at BFG 255/45 and 225/45. My alternative is Continental 245/50 and 225/50. Specs are very close but the Continentals are $200 less than BFG. I believe the original diameter of stock 69 tire was around 27" both these wheels are 1" and 1.5" shorter. Rear is stock height and the front is slightly lower than stock. Thoughts from you guys would be appreciated. The Vette rallys are coming off!!!

Re: Another tire question

How are the 17" wheels shorter then the OEM 14" wheels?

I personally like the look of the BFG tires better and would prefer the 255/45 over the 245/50 tire

Re: Another tire question

The 255/45 are 25.4" tall and the stock tires are 27". I agree on the BFG. The Conts are taller is my concern
