Widest tire size


Recommended Posts

Depending on the aspect ratio ... probably not . A 235 50 is too wide for a stock TC wheel . A 235 60 will rub , moderately . If you can find a 235 55 it'd be a little soft in the sidewall , as it's almost too wide , but with minor rubbing . A 225 50 will fit well in both aspects , with only "friendly" interference (got that out of the service manual . LOL) , but looks kinda goofy with the stock suspension .

It's fun to experiment with different tire sizes not so fun if you purchase the tires and they don't fit well.

Our rims are 6" only 235 is way too much tire for a 6" rim. A 7.5" rim is reccomended for a 235.

I had another FWD Chrysler (a few actually <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />) that came with 205/50/15 as OE on a 6" rim. Wanting to upgrade I went with 225/50/15- the car handled worse! The extra tire made the car 'squirmy' for lack of a better term.

It's only my opinion but I think a very good size for our stock 6" rims is 215/55/15 They have nearly the same rolling diameter as stock, have a slightly stiffer (shorter) sideway for better handling and road feedback and they don't have any 'friendly interferance' issues <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> Kumo 712's are nice and around $40. per tire.
