Maximum recommended tire size
I am in the middle of restifiying my 69 convertible. I am looking for the optimum tire size to fit on the original 15 x 8 rallyes. I want to take stance, footprint and turning radius (frame rubbing) into consideration. I have pondered 235/60/SR15's and 255/60/SR15's. The 255's have the same diameter(27.1 ") and rotations per mile (782) that the original 205/70/15's had. So, the speedo would read correctly. I am a little concerned with the cross section width of 10 inches. The 8 inch tread would be perfect. Opinions please!!!
P.S. New Corvette guy here. Have always owned Camaros and still own one.
There is a fine line between hobby and obsession and I think I crossed it!!
