I want new wheels and tires, but need tires now. I mean now... lol
So, I'm going with 215/60/15 front and 225/60/15's on rear.
I really don't care about rotation.

Any issues with this selection ?

Thanks

You should have no trouble at all: when I had an '87 GT I ran 215x60R15 on the front and 235x60R15 on the rear on stock wheels.....the rears were very close but cleared under all conditions.

Yahoo, got new tires.... 225/60/15 and 215/60/15 for $305.22 out the door.

Now I can relax and get the wheels and tires I really want next spring.

I had alot of water in each tire, and green slime in the other.
It was so bad that the installer had to stop and clean the floor. Wow
The tires were from 1991

I thought at first that you were referring to the new tires!

No the old tires, they said the leak was in the stem. Not sure why someone would use that slime stuff instead of some soap and spray bottle to find the leak, then correct it.

Anyone need old tires for show and tell ?

LOL
