So I got a set of these to go on the Corona, Need some suggestions on tyre sizes and what tyres other ppl have used.

The fronts are far too wide so I'm going to go down to 8's. The 205/60's make the car quite high. Suspension has been lowered via springs in the front and reset leafs out back, could do with an inch more at the back but I'd need blocks.

Do you have side view shots?

And these aren't too wide, your tires aren't small enough :wink:

Try a 195/50 tire. Also, find a solution to go lower without sacrificing too much comfort.

A 195 on a 10? That's gonna be painful, I wouldn't go narrower than a 205 on that. Try a 205/50, overall diameter is only 23.1 whereas those 205/60s are 24.7, that should get you down where ya wanna be. If the 205 is too wide, judging by your pictures, just a tick of camber should get you clear and you don't look to be running any now so you should be good.

195 isn't that aggressive. I rock it on the daily and have had no issues in the 2 years I've been rocking it. (except one time when I got like 5 punctures in it and didn't realize it and drove with no pressure in the tire lol)

always better to go a little small on the tire than too big and demolish the fenders imo.
