74 Chevy Nova Update 83 - Tires - Pt. 1 The Rears
Part 1 to the tires I chose for the Reborn Nova project. This segment is on the rear wheels. Big fat tires on a muscle car... who doesn't want that??? Heres the Tire calculators I used. The best one visually and that shows lots of info is the first one. You can easily flip through the sizes and all info is displayed on a simulated rim and tire. Allows you to play with offset and shows the backspace in inches. Makes an excellent print out for you to take with you and compare tire measurements in person The second one allows you to use an overlay feature to check between two tire sizes. It also show information and the numbers are not rounded off like in the first calculator so you get a little more exact on the details. 1- http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp 2- http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/tirecalc.php
