Tire recs for Daytona

Post by zdr » Tue Oct 06, 2009 9:13 pm

Hi - am getting Campagnolo's restored (7.5's and 9's) for Daytona, wanted to forgo the XWX's for something with more modern performance and reasonable price, while still not looking totally out of place. Any recommendations on brand/type? The car currently has 235/60 in front, 255/60 in rear, and I like the look of the wider tires, but seems the choices in these sizes are limited.

Thanks,
David

You basically won't find speed-rated 255/60r15s anywhere that look at all correct. Avon makes a 275/55 v-rated tire that I've been told works well.

275/55? That seems really wide. I'm surprised that will fit.
Thanks,
