I like that, Jerry. Nice car also. Look forward to seeing you again at the Peachstate show this spring.
I have 255/60/15's all around right now. Will probably go your route when I get ready to change.

Yep I'm trying to look at the pros and cons of different tire sizes. I already have two inch drop spindles up front so I'm limited to 215's. On the rear I could go larger but Iím not sure. I don't want to add more angle but wider could have some benefits. Thanks for all the help everyone.

I am not really sure what size were going with yet. Really depends on how much the lowering springs settle. Until that happens the 15's will stay on.

I've got 225 70 R15s on all four wheels. They were fine on the convertible. I put them (wheels included) on the Buick, because the Buick had bad tires and the convertible ones were new (and the Buick rallies are 14"). The fronts rub on the inner fenders in turns on the Buick, but not on the convertible. Odd.
