Re: SVO: BFGoodrich Comp T/A's...



Kenny,
 The largest tire you can safely fit on a 7" wheel, like the S.V.O., is a
225/50/16.The 245/45/16, if memory serves me correctly, requires a
8"wheel.I can guarantee you that the 245/50/16 will not fit properly.Both
of the larger tires will rub on a lowered car or a stock 84 even.Check with
the tire supplier and ask them if it is a safe fitment for that size wheel,
they have books to look this information up in.Good Luck.

                                   Neil
