300 Classic Replacement Tire Size

What tire size should I put on my 83' 300 classic? What are my options? Which are the best? Also, where do you get those aluminum wheels I see in the pictures? Mine has the hub caps. Thanks

We use Michelin 8 R 19.5 X7A...have not had any problems with them...I would imagine that they would fit your rig, too...I do have a friend with a 310 who uses a Japanese brand...less expensive, but he's happy with them.

We have Koyo 8R19.5 tires on ours and are satisfied with them.

What size rims are on your 300?

I think they're 19.5, but I'll check to be sure.

The 8R19.5 is getting harder to find.You could check the clearances, and see if a metric tire will fit in the wheelwells and on the duals.
