I was wondering if it would look goofy to put 245's on my bird with stock 95 aluminum. im not sure how deep the rims are. so I don’t want to much tread or else it will balloon out the sidewalls. anyone out there running this size, or 255's that can elaborate. :confused:

They look great. I put them on my 97 V6 T-bird before I gave it to my sister. She still gets compliments on them. Of course with the V6 in there she'll sure never wear em out by doing burnouts! :D

that's what I run on my 94 Cougar; great tire size! Make sure you get an alignment when you put them on though; the larger contact patch needs a spot on alignment.

I was gonna ask the same question, but no need any more. I knew 245's would look good, but no one ( outside of tccoa ) believed me.

Cool.

with 215/70's up front, would 245/50's or 245/60's look better out back?

I went with a slight rake look when I bought my tires. I bought Cooper Cobra Radial GT's with raised white letters. 235/60-15's on the rear, and 215/60-15's up front. I'd post a pic or two, but for some reason I'm unable to.
