Good wheel/tires setup for 88 Thunderbird

Discussion in '1967 - 1988 Ford Thunderbird' started by Tayber Turner, Jul 5, 2017.

  1. My car had 16" cobra R wheels. With 245/50 and it looks ghetto as shit. The front wheels stick out past the fenders a good inch at the least, and then the rears are flush to the outside. Every time I hit a bump and I have a passenger all it does is rub and destroy the sidewalls of my tires. I just wanna know what wheels and size of tires everyone runs.
     
  2. P215/70R15) this size is best for all around handling and control I run Mastercraft tires, and remember there are only two or three tire mfg, in the USA and they all make the same tire standards know matter what the ads tell you..
     
  3. Well unfortunately I only have 16 inch wheels. Another thing about that is she's five lug converted so I really don't have much of an option of wheels except 17 and 18's which 18's is what I want. I'm not sure how they even got cobra R wheels in a 16 because for my foxbody I can only find them in 17's and 18's
