what would be the difference as far as looks? im looking to put 295/50/15 on 10s at rear of 87 dodge b150 and the 245/60/15 on front but am unsure what will look right with the rear tire wheel combo....i was told the rear tire and wheel combo will give it that oldschool low,baggy sidewall look.....i selected these size tires as they are really close in hiegth as the original factory setup....sooooo,7s or 8s for the 245/60/15s on the front?? i appreciate the responses and help i recieved from my last thread about backspace....

8"
The rear tires are 11.5 wide on 10s.
The front's will be 9.5 so they should look better on 8s.
My 2%

If its just for show pizza cutters are cool .... but if its a daily driver the wider tires are better for control

I would go with 8's and they will also seat better on the 8's
