Funny U ask...I have brand new 295/50's but I think there just to short...I had a set of like new 255/70's from my old streetvan and I mounted them on your 10's and they look great ...there just a little taller and a little narrower than a 275/60.....

Thanks for that info. I have 295/50s and they're too short.
Your van is looking great Pete!! There's just something about a white van....

I always felt that 295/50s were too short and wider then i prefer. 275 60s are a little shorter than i prefer as well. 255 70 are very tall but running the 10 inch rim should shorten the hight slightly by the width stretch giving perfect look. on the fronts did you mount cragar 8s or 7s?and i guess 245/70 or 255/60 or 235/75?
