Hey Bone, I am done here in Dallas, NC and I just purchased new rubber for my 69 convertible. I put 15x8 magnums w/ 275/60/15 on the back and 15x7's w/ 215/60/15's on front. Could have possible went 225's on front but couln't tell until I put these on.
Hope this helps Yarddog

Hey, did you use the normal 4.5" backspacing on those rims?
