    I have picked up a set of 15"x 7" torque thrust wheels, my question is what is the proper tire for them?

    If you are daily driving it, a decent highway tire is called for. I found that I get a decent ride from the tires that were originally installed on my brother's '90 Town Car, which are 215/70/15s. What are you expecting/looking for from a set of tires?

    That sounds like a good tire size. Just highway and cruising driving, was thinking a set of Cobra radials about the same size. Thanks
