Dunlop Qualifer GT/Centerline Wheels

I am looking at getting four of these for my cougar. Has anyone had these? If so what did you like/dislike about them? Did they last you very long? Thanks for the help!

BTW I was thinking either 255/60/15 or 225/70/15....Will there be any problems with these sizes on my stock wheels....I am going to get some Centerlines later when I can find some used for a good price. Here is a link to the wheels I want they are the Centerline Telestars.

A 245/60-15 is probably a better fit for your stock rims.

245/60/15 fits great! I'm running the same Dunlops, but I've only had them for a month or so. They seem to be great tires.

Mods? Do the ones in the garage waiting to go on the car count?

Many thanks to my fellow Veterans; I am honored to be a part of your ranks.

I'm running 245/60/15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As and they look great and having a wider tire on the back has improved the car's traction a lot compared to the 215/70/15 stock tire.
No rubbing issues.


I had 255/60/15 Dunlop Qualifiers on my Ranger a long time ago, they were nice!

I like the T/A's as well....I have a friend who has 2 255/60/15 that he would give me that have about 70 tread on them. Then all I would have to do is buy the front tires.....do you think its ok to go with smaller tires on the front like a 225/70/15 or am I stupid?

Will the 255's rub in the rear?

Well I was running 215/70/15 tires in the front and 245/60/15 in the rear before I could get the other pair of 245/60/15 T/As and the car still looked good and handled pretty well, issue was traction on the back when I had the 215's.

I say you can run 225/70/15 and then change them later to match all around. now running 255/60/15 I'm not sure as I haven't used that, I think it should't be an issue since there is more room on the back for the tires.
