what do you think of this combo?

I have 15x8 corvette rallies on my camaro.

I'm going to get 255/60/15's for the back (same as current rears)

and 215/60/15's for the front.

currently the car has one 205/60/15 and one 215/60/15 (2 differnt tires lol) on each front wheel.

How does that combo sound to you guys, any suggestions?

Re: what do you think of this combo?

Seems like a 215/60/15 is a little small for the wheel. I could be wrong, I'd have to see it but.... I've got a 235/60/15 on 15x7's in the front and it looks right to me, may go a size smaller next time though.
I'll trade ya 2 15x7's for 2 15x8's.

Re: what do you think of this combo?

I don't think you'll like the looks of the sidewall with the 8" rally in front with that tire size. Back will look fine. Thats a very popular size. Think you need to go a little wider tire in front with the 8". Any reason not going with a 7" in front? I do like the deeper ring with the 8" myself. I switch between my Rally's and Cagars all the time on my car, but I run 7" in front and 8" in back.
