    Just picked up some new magnum 500’s for the RR. 15x7 for the front and 15x8 for the rear. If anyone is running a similar setup what size tires are you running? What would be the absolute widest tire I could go with on the rear?

    I believe the Charger has a bit larger wheel well than a gen 1 runner

    So 295/50/15 will fit on 68 runner with no issue with 15x8 rim with 4.5 backspace
    Trying to decide between 275/60/15 vs. 295/50/15

    That's a big tire !! Over 31" tall and at least 11" wide, that should change the stance of a vehicle

    235/60/15 for the front and 275/60/15 on the rear with the stance set as basically stock look really nice. Here is my 69 Road Runner with those size tires on 15 inch black Craggars. The tires are Diamond Back custom made using BFG's They are pricy, but the only way to get this size redline's.
