Can anyone with Geese out there give me the tire sizes that you're using? I just got dropping my front end (the previous owner had it jacked up sky high) 4.5". I think that he mounted large tires to fill up the front fenderwell space. I have 235x60x15 in front and 275x60-15 in the rear all on stock rims. Now that I've dropped the front, I'm having some fenderwell rubbing. The tires have age cracks so I have to replace them anyway so I'm looking for the right size. Thanks in advance.

Smiler
I run 275/60's in back (TireRack told me these tires were designed for the Chevy 454 SS pickup) and 215/65's in front. The fronts rub on full lock, but only a little. The front looks just a little high to my eye, but I don't really want it any lower. I could raise the rear, but that would raise the rear roll center, which van Vaulkenburg and others have said is already too high.
