    I'm trying to get a set of wheels and tires for the cuda. I've found a set of torque thrusts on line for sale. Tire size 225x60x15.

    Does anyone have pics of tires on a E body this size? Do these seem too small?

    I have a 71 Cuda with 275/60 X 15 in the rears and 235/60 X 15 in the front on repro rally rims. No problem with hitting the body or frame.

    I would say a bit small. They would only be 8 7/8" wide.
    Here is a good calculator to estimate tire width and height

    OK. I know on my others cars I have a staggered look. A bit larger in the back than the front. I'm not sure the E Body looks the same with a stagger to it. Again the first one I've owned. Here is a photo of my Dart 235 60 15 rear, 215 60 15 front. I like this look. I'm not sure if a E body will look goofy with all 4 the same. Can anyone out there please post photos of their cars with tire sizes front and rear?

    My E body has 235 70 15's on the rear and only 195 70 15's on the front. I now have the car is "drive ready" condition. I just want to improve the looks/stance for now. I intend to drive the car this summer and dial in it's mechanical "glitches" before I tear it apart to do it right over next winter. I just can't get over the ugly looking wheels on the car now.

    Not the best angle, but 225/60-15 up front. 245/60-15 rear.

    Thank you Sir. That's a nice stance. All bets may be off for me looking for rims. I just found out I have finally got the chance to buy a 69 RT Charger locally. It's going to take some serious consideration, but I may have to sell my Barracuda to swing the charger......Hmmmm.
