      I looked through all the old posts and it looked like you said the widest tire on a stock rim is 235/60/R15 is this correct? I have 215/75 15's on my beater 5th. 225 70's on my concert cruiser 5th and I'm looking for the widest for my 79 Diplomat. Going up in rim size is not an option as my buddy just sold me the coolest rally type rims of an 81 LeBaron. Thanks Mike

        It all depends on the width of those factory wheels. A 235-60-15 BFG Radial T/A is designed to be mounted on 6.5" to 8.5" rims, and 245 and 255 tires need a 7" rim width at a minimum.

        Those factory wheels are probably 7". Measure to be sure.

        255-60-15 tires fit nicely in the rear, but you might run into issues on the front if you stick with a 60 series tire.

      I saw you were going with the Dana on moparts and was wondering when you would post your axle for sale.
      Good luck I hope it moves fast.

        Thanks. Even after I get the Dana back I've got a bunch of other stuff that needs to be done. I'm moving up to 1350 u-joints and I'll need to find a solution the e-brake cables. Don't know yet if I need to change the master cylinder yet, but the distribution block is going to need to be replaced. All this stuff I'll worry about in the Spring. Everything in this hobby snowballs.

    What F, M or J Body do you own?:
    1987 Chrysler Fifth Avenue
    Bought a Fifth Avenue junior year of high school as just a daily beater. Got wrapped up in the hobby when a friend's Dad gave me a 360. Had no idea what I was doing, but I took it apart, learned, and after rebuilding it dropped it into my car. Been hooked ever since.
