[DML] Re: 245/60 R15 Tires?



In this way the circumference goes up.
Less space in the wheel well.
Perhaps not that much it will "hurt" but there's another issue to 
consider:
Larger (wider) treads mean more sensitive to skidding on wet or 
slippery roads.
Also means the wider, the slower, narrower is faster (meaning 225 
will be a better choice).
That's why we (DeLorean Custom Wheels Project) stay with the original 
circumference and width.

Welmoed.

personal experience using 245/60 R15 tires, with matching speed 
rating, as rear tires on the Delorean instead of the 235/60 R15 DMC 
specification?   David T. said they might be too wide for the rear 
wheel well, but upon inspection, there seems to be enough room there. 
David was also concerned about the handling of the car.  Would there 
be a lot more tread whining?
