Ok, ordered these front wheels in 15 x 4. Who can recommend a good front tire that doesn't break the bank for them?! Also should I go with the 15x7 or 15x8 for the rear? Want to go as fat as possible with the rear tire

Good choice. I would go with a 15X8 for the rear.

I went with the SSR wheels just a different style. I did go with the 15x8 in the rear tho and 15x4 up front. Have the rear 275 tires on the way but haven't ordered the front tires yet. NNnever thoght about bigger 17" rims in front, if I didn't already get the wheels I may have done that!!

I'd just buy the kit they have available. 15x4 fronts, 15x8 rears, drag radials, front tires, lug nuts, and valve stems for $1400 and change. Great deal!!

I already have the wheels, lugs, and back tires (275's) just need to get a handle on what front tires to run and what people are running on a 4" front on the street. Thanks tho, I do agree, these prices can't be beat!

i had a 185/80 but on a 5'' wheel... going the 17x4.5'' now.... maybe look at the 175/80.... think that works out to 26' tall .... or Mickey Thompson SR radial has a 26x6x15....

Might try the 175 if I don't get the 165's. Yea we have mt's here but I'm looking for a street tire and honestly have heard so many people say the mt's is junk and they are also expensive. Looking to see what skinny radial people are running

Myself and a few buddies have used multiple sets of these and they're great.I currently have a pair on the front of a Fairlane with a heavy,iron headed big block and it steers light at 45lbs.Even better at 50.Good tire,track straight for a skinny,price is right and they have a simple,lettered side wall graphic without any crazy swoops or swirls.I recommend them.
