PostSubject: maximum front tire size   Sat 18 Apr - 22:04

Hi ,

I have 235/60R15 on front and often the front LHS catches the guard. What is the max size others are running? Can I run 225 or need to go to 215?

Cheers

Sean

Hi Sean,

Believe it not, they are the exact same tires that were on the fronts of my car when I purchased it. Coincidentally, the first thing I noticed was that the tires were rubbing on the inside as well.

They were swapped out with 215/65R15's, which work fine.

I am running P255/60R15's in the rear.

Take care.

Thanks Kirk
I thought that was what you had mentioned before. I seem to be having a slight rubbing on the outside when going over a bump or dip. The tire catches on th eoutside, have not noticed the inside. Suspension seems tight enough. Sounding like 2`5 or 225 is better.

Hi Sean

I've got Yokohama 245 / 60 / r14 s on all four corners. the lips are rolled and there are no interference problems. The rims are Draglites, no sure of the backspacing.

regards

Denton

Thanks Denton,

I think I need to look into getting the guards rolled either a little or flat. Anyone had an experience at either getting it done with doll a nd hammer or one of those rolling tools? Wondering if any preference given the thickness of the steel guard?
