5 1/2 to 7
« on: October 18, 2011, 06:16:54 PM »
 Hey everyone, I just picked up some 7x14 rims and Im trying to figure out a tire combo for my 73. Two questions, 1. what is the biggest tire that I can run on the rear without problems? 2. what size would work all the way around so that they could be rotated? I like both looks- big and small and equal sized if done right. p.s. I did a search but I did not find an answer. So thanks for your help. [pics would be great...come on you know you wanna show yours off] Mike

I've got 245/60/14s on the back of a 72. I had a time finding those as 14" tires are getting rare like 13"s. My 80 bobcat has 205/60/14s at all 4 corners on 14 x 7 American racing rims.

Thanks 72pair, you have both of the setups I have been thinking about! Would you happen to have any pics. What size are you running on the front of the car with the 245 rears. Much appreciation for your reply, this place is awesome! Mike
