Hey all,

Just thought id let you know got new tyres 4 the back of my fairmont today...... Just have to wait for my rims before I can fit them........

After carefull measuring and checking clearance and offsets and stuff,

Found a pair of Bf Goodrich 265/55/15s just fit UNDER the gaurds if using the right offset. They wont scrub!!! And it looks fat!!!

Just need my front runners now and a cut down pro stock scoop!
