I run the phone dial wheels on the wagon. IIRC, 215/60's are what's on the rim with no issues. Rich

An 85 would be the fox LTD. The LTD II was the big ass 70's car

no, im referring to the small ltd four door based on the fox body design similar to the continental 4 door.
this car was the next step down from police and the next step up from taxi. buckets, console 5.0 efi factory headers trac-loc. duals

Now that you have the tires on.. You might want to check your spedo now. It is probably off due to the change of tire size. I only mention it because few police officers will buy that excuse for speeding...

ok, so becaiuse i forgot to change the speedo gear in the trans when i put the other ratio from the cougar in the back, the accelerometer was saying i was going 5mph slower than actual, once i put the new wheels on it, the speedo evened itself out, and am now only 0.5mph off so that's freaking awesome!

my new question is, and i didn't find another thread on it, but where can i get cheap tires for this? i went to tirerack.com, and the cheapest i can get are around $115, but that's for a S-112 speed rating, and i need the V-140mph rating that are closer to $150 each...
i just want to find other sites that would be cheap. since it's labor day i can't call around to find out tonight...

thanks!
