    Wheel/Tire setup Results

    Thanks all for your input it was super helpful!

    I went with the following setup

    BFG radial T/A 275 60 15 on the rear with a 4.5" offset 8" weld draglite rim.
    BFG radial T/A 245 60 15 on the front with a 4.5" offset 7" weld draglite rim.

    I couldn't be happier! The fit is great. I'm glad I didn't go wider in the back. However, I would like to go with a skinnier tire up front. I only went with the 245 because I just happened to have 2 new 245 60 15's sitting in my garage that were waiting to go on the back of my dart. When I need new front tires I will be going with a 235 or maybe even 225.

    A side note, I had to order two sets of lug nuts becase the first set didn't have a long enough shank.

    Here's what you will need if you go with the draglites.

    Lug Nuts:
    Weld Racing 601-1416 - Weld Racing Lug Nuts
    Lug Nut Seat Style Shank
    Thread Size 1/2-20 RH in.
    Lug Nut Head Style Standard
    Open End Design No
    Lug Nut Finish Chrome
    Quantity Sold as a set of 4.
    Lug Nut Shank Length (in) 1.380 in.
    Lug Nut Shank Diameter (in) 0.687 in.

    Pics soon.

    Man that looks great. I'm glad you posted since i was thinking of 245/60s for my fronts. I went with 295/50s on the back but have 195s on the front. They were on the wheels when i got them. Oh and love the wheels. I have a pacer copy of the draglites. Sweet ride - always had a soft spot for the 70.
