I’m looking for a set of tires for my 76.
In the front 255/60/15
In the back 275/50/15.
Can anybody tell me where can I get this set.

Has the BFGoodrich g-Force T/A Drag Radial in a 275/50R-15.

Why not run this size all the way around and trim the front fenderwell if you need to, to prevent rubbing just like the factory started doing in 1978.

I run the 275's on my 78 SA, no rubbing issues!:thumbsup:

The D.M.V will not let me install 275 in front only 255
I know there are the BF Goodrich drag but the performance table
Is not so good.

if I need I can install 275/55/15 that will be O.K. also but i can't find one.

You're right! I seems like BFG stopped making the regular T/A Radial in the 275 in a 15" rim. I can't find anything but the drag radial.:WTF (Which, as you pointed out has a poor overall performance rating).


Here's a g-body forum discussion the demise of the Radial TA.

Looks like I'm going to have to start saving for some taller rims.:thud:
