Re: Tire size

the 16" pony wheel is 7" wide right? or 7.5

that would mean a 235~ would be about the limit on 7 wide and for 7.5 maybe 245~ possibly 255. not sure on the quad shock area how far is it currently from touching the tire?

I have 245/50/16 on the back of my 92 gt with stock pony wheels. There ain't much clearance between the quad shock and the tire but I have not had any issues
