I'd like some opinions on the best new tires to purchase for my 1984 Ford E150 project. I believe most people use BFG 275- 60-15's for the backs and 235 or 245-60-15's for the front. Are these the most popular tires these days?

General Grabber light truck tires. 235-75-15 all the way around. That is what I run on my 89 E-150.


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!

General Grabber 245/75/16 load range E truck tire on the 1990 G30 454 EXT. Way stiff, good in the wind. 30 inches tall, not fat. GM Factory alloys. These work well for a one ton, I run them on the '94 B350 Xplorer too, same size, factory wheels.

Goodyear Wrangler 235/75/15.radials on the '88 B250, on Cragar black steel 5 spokes. Good all around relatively inexpensive tires that I don't mind too much if they pick up a nail in the alley.

GDay!

Thanks guys !!! These will go on my Ford 1984 E-150 Econoline. Will 60's be too short for the van? I've always used them in the past. Right now there are Goodyear 235-75-15's all the way around on stock steel wheels. I'm trying to go with the retro look. Most of my other vans had the BFG 60's all the way around.
