They are 225-60-r15s on a 7 inch rim in the front and a 245 60 r 15 on an 8 inch rim on the back. If I were to do it again, I would go with 7 inch rims and 225's all the way around so I can rotate the tires like on a 'normal' car.

15's for me. Tires are 225/60/R15's. I can't remember the width or the offset.

I believe you've seen mine before..

15 X 7 TTD 3.75 BS

I like the look of the 15's on the classic's but your right rubber choice is short

on the coupe I have the G-Force sports and love them, on the fastback I wanted RWL

I am running 15X3s on the front and 15X8s on the rear...I do swap back and forth with a set of original 14X6 stock GT rims but they are pretty skinny looking..I am debating getting an aftermarket version of the GT rims in 15X6 and 15X8..

As others have already posted, the performance tire market has been moving to 17" and above with the 16" and below gradually being left by the side of the road. I first heard this about 8 years ago when my son worked in the tire industry. I took his advice and had him set me up with 17" that looked vintage. I don't regret my decision.

On the age appropriate question, I'm practically old enough to be your father and I have no problem with not acting my age

I like 14s and 15s on these classic cars. I haven't had any problems finding what I wanted in the way of tires over the past few years. The larger rims with the narrow tires is the modern look these days but just don't fit the older car look. Now keep in mind that's just my opinion and as they say everyone has one.

Default No 16?

Odd, seems all the replies are either 15, or 17.
No 16's?

What we really need to do is poplulate Dodgestangs picts.
Thing with the V2 version of Dodgestangs is, I can look at the picts, but do not see what the sizes are.
Am I missing something?
