My '86 had 265/50/15s.  Widest you could fit on a stock tire.  Buncha friends had that same size on their 3rd gens (was a 90's thing I guess).  They were BF Goodrich Radial T/As.  Every late fall the car would go under it's cover and get snowed in until spring.  Every year they went flat over the winter, then pumped right up in the spring and held air just fine.  Did that for almost 10 years straight, no dry rot, no cracks, no flat spots ,etc.  Had an AC Delco greeneye battery in that car which also went flat over the winter every year and just charged up and ran great every spring.  Those were good components.

The 60ís rubbed on my car a tad on the inside side of the wheel wells.  (rear) and it rubbed  My tail pipes on a hard turn.   But it didnít on my new exhaust.   Everything is so tight.  TWSS
