Just starting on my 68 Baja Beetle revival project. I have a really cool old vw mechanic helping me put together the drive train. This weekend i'm shopping for tires, I've 15 inch rims. 5 inch wide wheels for the front and 9 in wide wheels on the rear. I'm looking for 32x11.5 for the rear and anything on the front thats narrow and tall, but also i need really soft tires with soft sidewalls.

Everything I've found that I think will work, like BF Goodrich and Mickey Thompsons, I'm being told are too hard of a tire.

Anyone have any specific suggestions?

31x10.5 is the most common tire used on baja's anything bigger might hit your torsion tubes if you have long torsion bars.

Clearance isn't going to be an issue on what we're building. I was more wondering what matching set of tires I could get that would look good and handle well. I went with the bf goodrich and they look fantastic. But I'm second guessing putting knobby tires on the front axle. We'll see. If it handles like a snow plow I'll know I made the wrong choice.

most tall tires in the fount will rub with a stock beam... what are you going to use the car for??? daily driver? Weekend trail rider? once you decide what you are going to use the car for then decide on tires.
