hello fellas,
i shall be in the market VERY SOON for new rubber for my 88 lx w/ silver ponies. currently, the wheels are sporting some firestones at 205/55/r16.

i was just wondering if anyone has experimented with tires on the pony wheels (4 lug, 7inch depth) and what they have discovered.

my main question is how wide of a tread can i put on these rims. i was planning on sticking with 50 profile, but was looking to go as wide as 255, but im not sure if i can.

leave one if ya got one!
thanks.

225/55/16 are the stock sizes. I woulnt go much higher than 235's. If it was me, i would stick with the 225's, because those wheels are really skinny. I dont think that you could run 255 safely, they may not even mount on the tire. Good Luck

I have 245's all around. I have not had any problems. Also, BF Goodrich Drag Radial 255's say they can be put on a 7" wheel. I am currently looking for other 255s that will fit 7" wheels.
