I don't want the tire over 24" tall & that one is.You are probably going to be more successful finding a 165-80-15. They were the stock VW size and it's what most guys run on the 3.5 fronts for cheap radials. http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/findTireDetail.do?pc=10072&counter=1&ar=80&rd=15&sw=false&cs=165
I want front tire like Steve's in the above post. My rear tires are only 26" tall, & I want a bit of a drop in the front because I like the look or rack better.Please dont take this as an attack or critisism,but why do you want that small of a tire on your car ? in my opinion,not that you asked for it,it wont look good and may possibly be unsafe on a 3000# + car.If your trying to get the front that low consider 2" drop spindles with at least a 26" tall tire.
Sounds great I like to look at all the cars on here. So if I went with a 29" slick in stock rear fender wells, 3.73 gears & a TH-350 that would work better in the 1/4 mile than a 26" slick?I understand where your coming from.His car does look good. I was just always interested in putting as much tire in the wheelwell (rear)as you could,which on a 69 would be a 10 x 29 slick or a 275/60 drag radial which is 28 tall. but thats my deal not yours.I get it.Have fun and drive it like ya stole it!If i ever get off my *** and post pics of my own car ill pm you to show you what my 195/75/15 fronts look like.Maybe youll like em.
Love ur 68 BRO!!!heres a cheap set of Nexen 165 80 15s on my 68, they measure 24.75 tall. A little taller than you want but they work good for the price.
A 29 10 tire will give you more surface contact than a 26 10 which will aid hook and consistency. It will however knock a little gear ratio out of it too ex. 110mph 5300rpm w/3.73 26"tire, 110mph 4750 w/3.73 29"tire.This might be good if you cant hook your 26s or bad if your already bogged down out of the hole.If your 26s work for you stay with em .My settup and usage may be much different than yours.Its a whole package you have to consider,engine power,tires, gearing.They all affect eachother.Most racers will choose tire size first(due to class restrictions,size limitations,or general preference)then gear the car accordingly.Sounds great I like to look at all the cars on here.
