Experience with wide tyres? Please help me.
My two front tyres are absolutely bald... it's wonderful how the law enforcers haven't noticed my tyres for a long 6 months! Better fix it up before I have an aciddent in the rain or get a penalty.
I have 15 x 7 inch mags with 225/60/15 sized Yokohama rubber all-round with 5-10 % tread (Very bad, I know!)
I intend to get 235/60/15's for the front and 255/60/15's for the rear, 'RoadHugger' tyre brand ($650-700 altogether). Reputable aftermarket tyres with the Falcons. Can 235 and 255 mm wide tyres be 'SQUEEZED' on 7 inch mags? Is that a bad thing or not? What are the advantages/disadvantages?
The correct mag/rim size for 235mm is the 7.5 inch wheel and for 255mm is the 8.5 inch wheel.
