15x7 ralley wheels

I know this has been researched to death but I am trying to find pictures of a 67 with 255x60x15 on 7" ralley wheels for the rear. I found alot of post with this size on a 15x8. I have a set of 15x7's that im going to use until I can afford to replace them with some 17's. I also have the hotchkis tvs system on my car. Would this be a good tire size? THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

I had 15x7 255/60/15 on my 69's rear until I swapped them for 17's. It may not help, but here's a pic;

Re: 15x7 ralley wheels

Thanks for the picture. I wanted to be sure this tire size would work and still look good. I cant afford the 17's now but, it looks like the sizes will be 235x60 for the front and 255x60 for the rear. Thanks again for the quick reply.

I have 67 with the TVS package and 15X7 with 245/60's front and back. Look at my profile. I can email you another side shot if you like.

Re: 15x7 ralley wheels

I was told that I would only be able to get a 235/60 in the front. Do you have any problems with tire rub? I would like to get the biggest tire possible and still have a nice lowered stance. I think you nailed that with your car, Thanks for the help!!!

Re: 15x7 ralley wheels

It doesn't rub unless I hit a really hard bump (small animals at 40+). When I first got the TVS package installed it rubbed on small bumps and dips in the road at 50+ but I had the original body mounts that were flat. Once I changed out to the Polygraphite ones, the rub was gone. I hear the solid mounts are good too.
