I'm using 255/70's all around. When I look at my front tires, they sit perfectly with just the right amount of tire out of the wheel well. But the rear tires are inside the wheel well a lot more. What is the correction for this? I'd like the rear tires to have as much exposure as the front tires.

Some people are against them but you can add some 1" spacers. Or wider rear rims or a little more reverse on the rim. Just a few ideas.

These vans naturally have a wider track width in the front if you are at stock height, then it's about 1" that the rear should be spaced out to match the front. That is why a lot of custom vans run a wider rear wheel than the front, it makes them look more even.

I agree Astro. My 1975 Chevy Van G20 shorty had white wagon wheels with 60's in the front and 50's in the rear and I loved the look and ride. I've got 15x8's all around on this 1993 and they have 255/70 on them. Don't know how wide I can go with my 15x8.

255/60 r 15 is a good size on 15X8 you can go 275/60 but center may wear a little bit fast.
