Greetings all:
Looking for new tires to replace the original tires on my 84 that came from a private collection. Look good but don’t trust due to age. They are Goodyear Eagle VR50, size is
P255/ 50VR16 they are rotational tires.
Called around and being told that size not available?
If that’s true, what are you C4 folks using for your tires?
Car has the stock OEM wheels and Z51 package if
That makes any difference. Thanks in advance for any help.

The 245/50/16 will provide better front fender clearance. As for the tires, Kumho, BFG and Nitto are great choices. Try 4wheelonline for other options.

Another solution is to get larger 17" wheels. In this size, you will have more selections.
