Hello,
New to forum, 1st van --

Could one of you please help me learn about how to RAKE my van? I have to get new wheels and tires for my new ride, but want to make sure I get the rake I love so much --

Not trying to go nuts, however would like to have some slight rake and figured wheels and tires would work great if I could find the proper sizes..

Id like to use Cooper Cobra G/T tires, with Cragar Nomad Wheels (white) --
I have Cragar Nomad Wheels on it right now, but all the tires are rotting off. I believe they are 14" wheels, not 100% --

Can any of you recommend a solid wheel size and tire size combo for a nice moderate rake on my van?

thanks!!
-jes

I got two inch blocks on the rear of Black Magic (85 Dodge shorty) That gave me the look I wanted with out having to mess with two different size wheels and tires. Plus I didn't want to deal with any kind of suspension work in the front.

Dang never knew you had that Lukester, bitchin van.

Jesse - I have a long wheel base van and used 245/60/15 fronts and 285/70/15 rear by a company called galaxy radial g/t. They didnt have 255/60's which I wanted up front but this is just rubber rake! I will be adding 2.5" blocks. Since the pic below I have built out the interior so it sits a little lower (more weight) so the 2.5" should hopefully be perfect.

Another view when I first got it. I want the rear gap to match the front gap. I like full suspension travel in a van.
