Finally decided to go with 17 inch wheels

Hello all,

After much thought and looking at other 1969 camaros at shows this summer, I have decided to go with 17 inch wheels. The car currently has 14 inch wheels and B.F. Goodrich Radial TAs.

My 383 stroker was just installed and a built 2004R transmission will soon follow. The rear end is a 3.73 posi unit. So it looks like it is time to get the look that I want with new wheels and tires.

My question is, for a street only car that gets romped on every once in a while, what brand tire do you high performance drivers prefer? I am thinking that traction may be an issue with my new combination so the tire choice will probably need to have superior traction .

Thanks for your help.

John T.
