By my calculations, I didn't think 275/60's would fit inside the
fenderwells.  I don't have my rear fenders back from the paint shop yet but
I had figured on 255/60's due to size constraint.  I like the raked look but
I was going to go with 215/70's on the front so that they would be narrower
but the same height ( diameter ) and this way I could carry one 215/70 spare
tire that could be put on any of the four corners and driven without any

If anybody is running 275/60's on the rear I would like to hear about it.  I
would rather run the bigger tires.
