Question Tire Sizes...

I would like to throw some BFGoodrich Radial T/A's on my '88 CV with 14x7 and 15x8 Appliance rims. I would like to retain a stock sidewall size for the 14" rims up front, and also keep the factory sidewall height in the rear which I believe is a 70 series. However I would like to put wider tires on the rear, and keep 225s up front. I'm currently shopping on tirerack, and I've picked out 225/70/14 for the front, and 255/70/15 for the rear.
How wide of a tread could I go on the rear rims being 8" wide? Does that sound like a good combination?

Thanks,
Darren

Re: Tire Sizes...

Anyone know how wide we can go on the rear? I've got stock 15" on my 94' and want to go 295/50/15. Whoo-hoo!!!

Re: Tire Sizes...

I know that I was able to put 295/50/15's on my dare-I-say-it Caprice. I Know Someone out there has tried this. 88_vic and I can't be the only ones out there trying to make our rides look old school are we?

Re: Tire Sizes...

We're here but I don't have any idea on oversize tires.
