    I have a set of 245-60-15 and 275-60-15. I will mount them on new mag 500 15x8 wheels and wanted to make sure others have used the 245 fronts and would like to see how they look on a 71-72 b body. I always loved the 245 front-275 rear rake on my GM cars so would like to use this combo on my 71 Charger. Anyone running 245/60/15 as I would like to see pics. I won’t be buying new tires and prefer the wider grip up front but would like to see what yours look like.

    Currently running my f70-14 polyglas tires with my factory road wheels and would like to store these for the cruise ins and shows

    Thanks

    The 15” magnum 500s with 245/275 should look great on your car! Don’t forget to post pics!

    This 245 in the front 265 in the back. I couldnt go 275 because I had to use a small spacer in the back to clear the discs.

    245 front, 295 rear. The diameter is 26.6 on both. It is a lot of tire up front and iif you drive aggressively, they can overpower stock brakes in high speed stops. Cruising is not an issue.
