Reply to "Tires for Pantera 10X15" 14X15" rims"

Lash, I've never found suitable tires front & rear from the same mfgr for 8" & 10" Campys, so I've ALWAYS run 'mismatched' combinations for both track and road. For a year, we ran Hoosier DOT belted-bias rears (275-50) and Yokohama radials (225-50) up front on a 450-horse Pantera, in both street and autocross. Zero handling problems once we figured out that belted bias tires need air pressures lowered to tune while radials need pressures increased to tune. We won more events than we lost that year but the Hoosiers were scrap after 1000 miles. They were DOT legal with a ZERO tread wear rating.

I don't advise running mismatched combos across the car- eg- one radial and one belted-bias each sidem on the front or rear. Weird, uncontrollable things may happen. But front-to-back= no problem.
