[V8] Goodyear Tires

My understanding is that tires need to have the same circumference in 4
wheel drive applications.  Changing circumference changes the final drive
gear ratio. Tires should be *very* close to avoid strain on the drivetrain.

How is having FOUR same sized (%) sidewall profile tires a bad combo?

The (sidewall) difference between 60% of a 215 width and 65% of a 215 width
is tiny.
