Advice on Mag 500 tire combo.


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just hopin to get some opinions on tires for my car. I have 15x7 front and 15x8 rear 500's and was going to put 235 60 15 bfgoodrich t/a front and 255 60 15 bfgoodrich t/a on the back but it seems there are no 235 60 in the country right now and they arent being made. Thought about the 225 60 but dont want to much difrence front o back so i could go 245 60 in the rear. What do ya think. Id love to see pictures of similiar size tire combos. Thank ahead of time for your opinion. Michael

I have 245/60/15 all around on my 71.. I think they're the perfect size for our cars. My 73 has 225/60/15 on the front and 245/60/15 on the back.. Idon't care for having different size tires but I got a good deal on the keystones which were 15x6 and 15x7's.

I pulled the trigger on a set of staggerd rims, 15x7 and 15x8 with 225/60 in the front and 275/60 on the back. I almost went with 225/70 as this would straighten out the height issues but though there might be clearance issues then so with the CJ Pony Package and saved enough to buy a set of fronts after the season is over...

I, Agree with 71mach351 about the 245/60/15 all around you can see a pic of my red ramair car with this size and 15X8's on it before I found the dog dish wheels at this link.

Bf goodrich did that to me last year with the 295/50/15 . I looked all over the place and couldn't find any,finally I got tired of looking and went with some Mickey Thompson radials. A few months after I bought them I saw where Bf Goodrich started making them again . I can't believe they did that with the 245/60/15 I would think that's a pretty popular tire size. I would do the 245/60 up front and at least a 255/60 in the rear. I have 245/60/15 on 15x8's on the front and 295/50/15 on 15x10's on the rear.

Or you could always scrap the Magnums and Roll Low and Slow

 

What tire size would that be? 245/10 R24?

this is going against what you want though but i'd recommend something FAT in the rear. our car's look wimpy with skinny tall tires. if i were going with 15's all over again i'd do the following:

 

-15x7 with a 225/60/15 in a lowered car to counteract the tire rubbing on a hard left turn

 

- 15x9/10 on a 275/50/15 and that'll give you the same tire height all the way around. or i'd even do a 295/50/15.

 

fatty meat looks best on our car's. and screw the ability to rotate tires, we're going to fry them before they get 60k miles on them anyways so do you really care? if you want a little bit more life, just get NON-DIRECTIONAL tires and rotate left to right and right to left.

 

i had 275/60/15's in the back and those darn tires are just too dang tall for the rim diameter. too muc sidewall for my likings. on 15's i'd stay with a 25.5-26.5 inch tires diameter.

 

look at some of my old post pictures of the car when i first took her home, rear tires are way too dang tall and too much sidewall.
