I would put a set of those on my 90 ragtop, but I wouldn't stagger the tire sizes I would use 4 fronts and stick to the same size tires on all 4 corners.

I like 4 the same tire for rotating purposes, you can't get any tire mileage out of leaving the same tire in the same location for the life of the tire.

But maybe that is just the old mechanic in me speaking.

I like the look a lot. Did you need spacers?

No spacers used. Rim size are 18X8.5
I tried to put the 19x10, but that hits and people said spacers are not good to use.
I just don't get the wide look from the rear...
