I am looking at some new wheels for the Roadster. They are 18x8. What size tires do I need to look at for the '72. Right now it is dropped 2 1/2 in front and 4 in back.

It really depends on your tire
size, a 18 will be fine if your
running a mid profile tire, if
you plan to run low profiles
I might consider going 20's.

I had looked @ 255/55-18 tires. Or something along those lines anyway.

Ok I have been looking at this for days. This is what I came up with.

235/75-15 28.9 inches tall
255/55-18 29.0 inches tall
255/35-20 27.0 inches tall

Is this right? The 18 will look like the original 15's ?
