Default Re: question about tire sizes

My V-Rod being as low budgeted as it is, I run whatever I can get my hands on that have at least 12 the tread left

At the moment I have 205/70/14's on the front with Olds steel ralley wheels, I run 235/75/15's on matching Olds wheels, I use adapters, one day I hope to buy blank rotors so I can drill them to fit the Olds wheels

The front tires are with in 1/2 inch of the stock VW tire so my speedo is correct, the rear tires are 28 inches tall, my very 1st VW I put a set of old Jeep tires on it, they were 30" tall by 10" wide by 15"
I put them on stock $-1/2" wide VW wheels & drove the hell out of it for a while, they went on easy, getting them off was a bit tougher, but that's me changing tires manually, which I still do except when buying "new" tires
