Tire Size

I have a 1968 Deluxe Coupe. I plan to use GM 15 X 7" rally wheels. My suspension is stock. I also would like to use BF Goodrich tires. What would be a good looking tire size that would not rub or look odd? Thanks!

Re: Tire Size

On my 68 I run 15x8 (see profile pic) and have 225 60 15s in front and 255 60 15s in rear. You should be able to run a 215 60 15 front and 255 60 15 rear without problems. Even a 205 would be fine in front.

Re: Tire Size

i have 15x7 rallyes with 216/65/15 tires on my 69z28. They are really close to the original size and fit without any problems.

Re: Tire Size

Back in the day I had 235/60-15 on all 4 corners. Did not rub at all.

Re: Tire Size

I have 235/60/15's on my front wheels which are Cragar S/S 15x7, 4 1/8 inch backspace, and they don't rub. If you are running 15x7 on all 4 corners, I think 225's would look great as well. That's what I'll be running on my second 67 RS.

Relax, all right? My dad's a TV repairman, got an ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.
