Question 1969 14x7 P225/70/R14

I looked through the photos and posts, but could not find anyone with the combination I am looking to do on my 1969 RS/SS Convertible. All stock with 14x7 ralley rims.

Will BF Goodrich P225/70/R14 work on all fours with no rub in the front and back?

Thanks, Dan

I don't run your exact size but do have 14x7 rims on the front with 3-5/16 back space. My tire is a 205/70-14 Radial TA. My convert is lowered 1 to 2 inches in the front and I don't have any rubbing issues. If you are unsure and want to order tires, I'd order them from your local Discount tire. The first set I ordered was too tall and they took them back even though I drove them for 10 miles. They wouldn't credit me the freight charge but applied the entire cost of the tires and tax towards the 205's.

Thank you for the advice. Anyone else out there running P225's?

I have been trying to find the tallest tire that can fit to counter-act a larger gear ratio. The P225/70/14's seem to be the tallest overall diameter that anyone is posting and mesasure 26.4". Even the fatter Nitto 555's are shorter in overall diameter.

I'm running 14x7 reproduction rallys with BF Goodrich 235/60 R 14's. I don't remember the backspacing on my wheels, but I don't have any rubbing issues front or back. I'm running Hotchkis lowering springs front and rear, so the car is lowered a bit. The 70 series you are looking at will likey be a tad taller and more narrow. Wouldn't think you would have any issues with the rear, not sure on the front.
