It depends on what size tire your rims will support.

I have a 92 Flairside and run 275/60-15 on the rear and 235/60-15 on the
front. I also have Bell Tech lowering 2 inch front 4 inch rear

A 255 is probably about the widest you want to go on a 7.5" rim, I think the
general rule is to keep the rim within 2" of tire width otherwise the angles
on the beads can get extreme. Of course there's always exceptions to this,
but I know putting 255/50's on my 17x8 rims was a stretch, a 60 series will
have a better sidewall to work with, but may still be pretty tight ... a 275/60
has a good sized side wall, but will be pretty large compared with the 7.5"


Calculating out the widths you find that the 275 is about 10.8", which in real
life is still nearly 3" wider than your rims. The 255's are 10" or so, so still
over that 2" "rule". If you are sticking with the stock rims I'd suggest the
255's as probably a good max, depending on how you use the truck.

When I say it was a stretch, one tire shop couldn't do it because the sidewalls
were too short, another did it for me, but being a tire store they have more
experience and it still took them 2 tries.

'85 2.8; beter to use a 390 4-V Holley (ugh..), retune a 600 4-V Edelbrock or
500 2-V Holley for a stock to near stock engine that sees some use requiring
low RPM oopmh in the sand? Never had any good experiences with Holley 4's in
the long run, but good marks for the 2-Vs and Edelbrocks.

Comments?
