I just bought a set of weld prostars for my 72 nova and I don't know what size of tire to go with. The rims are 15x8 w/ 4.5 b.s. and 15x5 w/3.5 b.s.
I prefer to go with bf Goodrich radial ta's. The nova is all stock suspension and drum brakes.
Thanks for your time

The 4.5" rear backspacing is going to creat a little issue for you. The 68-72 novas tend to need 5 to 5.5" of backspace for the rear tires. Typically a 275/60/15 will fit great but not with the 4.5" backspace. If you like your tire tucked in the fender and not hanging out you may get by with a 255/60/15, but if you are into the 70's jacked up look you have plenty of options!:supz:
