Re: Tires for 1991 ford e350 Sportsmobile
like in that thead you just dont want different sized tires when rolling. for a bit is fine, but long term effects can be really bad. and honestly, if you put the skinnier wheels in front and the wider ones in back, you likley wont have any issues as you will more than likley be in more forgiving conditions when in 4wd so that even if they arent turning at the same rate, the loose conditions will compenate.
even though the tires are the same size, putting them on different width wheels can (not always, but like i said depends on the setup and tire) change the overall diameter. i know it seem minoot, but even being just a little off can destroy a diff, especially a lsd. think about it. you have 2 tires on your back axle. one is 1/4" less in overall diameter. how much farther is the smaller tire going to travel compared to the larger tire in a 500 mile road trip? this is the reason a tire shop wont change just one tire on a awd car.
and the offset wont hurt anything, but it might look kinda goofy. Id check the back spacing on those wheels. seriously, in the pic, every one looks different than the next.
