Need to source tires for my 71 GTX


Recommended Posts

Wondering where I can source appropriate tires for my build of Daisy Duke's GMX?  The kit tires are 1) much too narrow, 2) too big for the appropriate wheel hubs (thanks for them Lee!), plus 3) it appears the rear tires might be just a LITTLE bigger and wider, but are not huge racing flats.  

Here are a few photos I've taken from the show or found in my research; what do you think, and where can I find appropriate tires?

Kewl!  Although I'm not worried about the brand name, figure those could change.

Maybe this shows my problem better.  In my tire stash, the closest things I've got are these.  The slightly larger tires aren't really much wider at all over the other ones, so I fear it will just look like I've got crummy mismatched tires going.  I'm thinking it's serious enough that I should source a dedicated set.
