Input on tires.

I have a set of tbird sport wheels that i am going to put on my 97 lx. As far as tires, i want to put 255/55 16's in the rear, w/ 215/65 16's up front. General tire makes both these sizes in the Grabber UHP's. The two sizes are the same height. My fear is that since the rears are so much fatter and will therefore ''pull away'' from the wheel, that it will almost give off the illusion that the front tires are taller.

Does anyone have any opinions or input on this? Or does anyone run this same setup?

I doubt that. Back many years ago I had a '69 Dodge Dart Swinger 340 4spd that had a 5 on 4" lug pattern and wheel optrions were limited. I used 14" X 6" Superior Chrome Slots all 4, I usually had G60-14 tires on the back and E70-14 on front, looked great. I never jacked up the rear, those tires filled the rear fender wells of that car.

I also had one set of G60-14 rear / F60-14 front that looked good, and finally a set of 215/60-14 BFG TAs that really were nice. At this stage I used stock rear height and lowered front with Gabriel Adjustable Striders set on exfirm, it handled pretty good.

Would love to have that car back.

A fine pair ... ... and whatever you do, Have a Safe Trip!

Oh man, 69 was a good year for the Dart...as it was for most any car. Sounds like a pretty sweet setup you had there though.

Anyway, i appreciate your input. Thanks crystalpistol!
