Hey everyone, I am just about done building my 400 bored .30 over, And it's time to get some new or used(new) tires. I am having some problems finding some info around the web for a decent tire size to run.

I want to get a decent muscle car look (fatter in rear) but don't have a ton of cash to spend, since I have sunk quite a bit into my engine. Also, these will just be to get my by through this summer.

My car is a 1972 Lemans, So could you all recommend some rear/front tire sizes for me that are pretty common, so I might be able to find some used? or fairly cheap brand new.

All help is greatly appreciated!!

I'm running BFG 235/60r-15's on my 67. Turned the letters to the inside. Wide looking stance and within 1/4 inch dia of the OEM F70-14's.

With the '67, the 235s work really well. With the '68 and later cars, most people get away with running a much larger tire without too much problem, providing your rim offset is correct.
