What size and make of tires are good for an 87 TC. I've heard some people say to run 255/60/16 and do you guys think? I can't afford some $800 tires. Affodable but good is what I'm looking for. Thanks

I'm running 235X55s and like them very much.
Nothing rubs. I have stock springs but the fronts have probably sagged a tad. I have heard you an go 245X50 with only possible rubbing on the driver's side front on a hard turn. I'm nor sure you can get the 255s to work.

88 TC X 2, 86 SVO, Main TC with K&N, 3"DP to 2.5"duals through Dynamax, Ric valve at 17+ and disconnected KS.
Elite Bodega 16" chrome wheels. Autometer pod w/ A/F and Vac/boost gauges. New engine shortly, ported head and
manifolds, polished and cc'd chambers, A-230 cam, Race Engineering Adj Cam Sprocket, Crowlers, ARP head studs, Walbro 190 pump and T-3 for starters. KB subs
and jack rails.

I'm running Delta Akurat 245/50R16's, they are H Speed Rated. I paid about $103/each for them, mounted & balanced. They do rub just a bit on a very tight turn, but nothing major.
