    I just got a new set of rims for my car and I am having trouble on deciding the front tire size. I went with a 15x4 on the front . what size of skinnies are you guys using on the street? the car is a 70 chevelle with a sbc. Thanks in advance.

    DON'T use the VW tires they look silly on that car I think. I have a 72 Chevelle with 15 x 3.5 on front and I bought the VW tires first but eventually used a much bigger tire at the recomendation of the speedshop guy and they looked way better.They are sorta big for a narrow rim but it works well to fill up the fender. I will look tomorrow and post the size...It is like a 215 75 I think, not 100%. Sounds big but works.
