I run the BF Radial T/A's, and they look great. I have a 66 Couple with !5X7 Wheels, and 225/60s up front and 235/60s in the rear. The car has been lowered 1" all around and there are no clearance problems. I'm pretty sure I could have fit slightly bigger though. Soon I plan on swapping the 235's to up front and getting 245's or 255s for the rear.

I know this wont help much since we have different cars and wheel sizes, but I do like those tires! If the Comp T/A's came with raised white lettering I certainly would have gotten those instead.


66 Coupe:
302, AFR heads, Tremec 5 speed, Performer RPM, MSD Ignition, 9" w/ 3.70 gears, 4 wheel disc, subframe connectors, etc
I like 235X60's on all four corners of a Mach..they fill up the wheel well and look great..
