Tire Questions

Discussion in '1965 - 1973 Classic Mustangs -General/Talk-' started by mhjo, May 26, 2014.

  1. Time to change tires. I now have big wide tires in the rear and smaller (narrower) in front. This was recommended the last time I changed, but I was not explained why.

    Can anybody explain for me?


    What are the ideal dimensions front/rear for a Mustang with AOD (3:55 axle ratio) ?
  2. it depends on your setup, and what you are wanting from the car. personally i prefer my tires and wheels to be the same size on all four corners. for our classics something like a 205/65r-15 works real nice imo. remember these are light cars and really dont need a great deal of tread width.
  3. Thanks. The measurements I have now are:
    Rear: 205/70
    Front: 195/65
