My 68 is due for a new set of tires and I'm looking for a tire that looks nice and beefy on the car to give it a little bit of a muscle car look. I'd love some size recommendations and really love any photos of your cars to see what the tires look like on the car. I'm considering maybe a different profile on the rear than the front and maybe even 14" on the front and 15" on the rear.

Thanks in advance, Mike.

That's a nice look and I've always liked the T/A radials. What size are those on your car?

215/70... When I bought it, it had "big wheels" on it, but I got tired of the rubbing.
Look HERE for more opinions.  Sorry, not any pics in this thread, just plenty of discussion.

Are you switching from bias ply to radial, or already radial.  When I went to radial found that the factory front alignment specs didn't work well.  Went to a customized setup to compensate for the radial tires.

215/70 radials are what I have now. I put them on the car in the late 1980's and they still have treads but are overdue for a change. I may go back with the same but I'm playing with the idea of the rears being a little beefier than the fronts this time. I will post a photo as soon as I learn to attach a photo here.

Here's a photo that I took a last week, I've always liked the look of the 215/70 radials but like I said earlier I'm thinking of something a little racier.

Oh I remember, I was born in 1954 and have owned this Camaro since 1987.

here's a link to an ebay auction for a set of tires that I like the looks of:
