    What is a nice look for my 87 T-Type. It has the original rims. Will 235/60/15 in front and 255/60/15 rear look nice. What are you guys using?

    On the original 86/87 T-Type rims, 235/60/15 are just about PERFECT on the diameter to have no speedometer error. I am currently using Cooper Cobra raised black letter on two of mine and BFG 235/60/15 on the other. If you want the 'big and little' look, you are using the correct look, but a little speedo error. 255/50/15 would be closer for accuracy, but will PROBABLY rub on end of turn (lock to lock) with stock suspension settings. Running other size 16"GM rims on rims on fourth.

    On my Regal, I have 215/65 15's on the fronts and 255/60 15's out back with the stock T rims.

    245's at all 4 would look nice pretty sure they will tuck up front, be tight tho

    I know it's not a Regal, but I had 255/60R15s on my Cutlass on 15x8 Cragars on the rear. They fit well and did not rub with stock springs and shocks. The fronts were 14s, which were too small, but that's what I had laying around.
