245 75 16 that's 30.5 " tire,,,,,,I'm just wondering now that I got these Baja 16's if 70's will not be too narrow,,,really want 235 70 16 or 245 70 16,,,people may not mount them for me.
May go staggered 255 70 16 rear 235 70 16 front,,,,these wheels are huge to me.....mounted up front wheel w/o tire and they are close to everything but seems to be ok,,,,hub rings coming of course 83-78.1
Bottom line what's smallest tire you would run on 16x8???? for front only of course....
Frscke1 those are on 8" ?

Those 8" rims probly are for a 10"wide tire .... put a wider or thinner tire on a rim and the bead wont lock up right and you risk losin a tire goin around a corner.

From a personal note...on my 93 G20 I'm running 255-70-15 on all four corners on an 8" Rally wheel. No rubbing in the back, BUT on the front I have to be careful hitting dips in the road or going over speed bumps because the outer wall of the tire will slight rub on the inner lip of the wheel wheel. As with most vans the front track is wider than the rear track.

I just go slow and I don't have any issues.
