    The wider the better. After last month I will ONLY take the first SEVEN entries that meet the criteria. What's that you ask?
    • Must have tires
    • Must have tires wider than 9" in the back. 9" does not count.
    • Need to include the tire size (width-%-R-radius) in your post.
    • Tires must be on wheels on your axle. A set of 20" side tires in the back of your El Camino or your trunk doesn't count :banana:
    I figure the 9" limit will make it a little more interesting. Picture MUST be from the back 1/4 or full-on showing just how wide those things are. obviously we're going to see a lot of drag cars here, or maybe not. I dunno. Trying to make it interesting.

    Will run the entries for 7 days or until we have seven qualifiers.

    275/60-15's are at least 10" and maybe closer to 11". I have 245/60-15's and they are a little over 9" so I'm not big enough to play....timo22
