Tire Recommendations
« on: May 12, 2019, 01:03:30 PM »
I bought 18” wheels for my ‘73 Firebird.  What do you guys recommend for for tires if you’ve got 18” wheels on your cars?

I run 17’s on my ‘71 so size doesn’t compare. However I picked my overall diameter (and thus tire size) by trying to stay as close to the overall diameter of a 225/70/R15 as I could for several reasons beyond the scope of this message.
If you’d like to study a bit and come to a decision in your own, might I suggest www.tiresize.com which is a real rubicon of information.
