Im back working on the 56 now. Got my rearend narrowed now gonna install the triangulated 4 link. I have 315/35/20 on 20x10 and have 18x7 on front. Im needing help deciding which tire to put on front to have about the same sidewall as on the back. Im using Vredestein tires an theres not a whole lot of sizing to choose from.
Sidewall height is all about the aspect ratio of the tire with regards to the width. The tire size tells you all you need to know. Form there, it's just a matter of doing a little math. Your rear tire is 315mm wide with a sidewall height 35% of that, which is 110.25mm. Now, go through the available sizes until you find one close. A 235/45, for instance, has a 105.75mm sidewall. And the average person isn't going to notice a 3/16" difference in front to rear sidewall heights. Of course, these numbers are somewhat theoretical, but should get you in the ball park.
Hey thanks alot. You made that easy to understand. I called several local tire shops and noone could or would explain how to choose my tire. One guy wanted me to bring in what i have and simply match one up. I finally got ahold of David at Coys where i bought the wheels and rear tires from and he ordeed me some vrededtein sessanta 235/45/18. Thanks again.
