What tire size will replace 7.35-14
My 67 was sold with 7.35-14 tires. As far as I can find out they are 26.8" tall.
When I visit TireRack they recommend 195/75R14 as replacement and Rims'n'Tires recommend 205/75R14 as replacement.
However, a 195/75R14 is 25.5" tall and a 205/75R14 is 26.1" tall.
My question is if they really do replace 7.35-14 since the 195/75R14 is 2.6% smaller than 7.35-14 and the 205/75-14 is 4,8% smaller.
On the SS cars I believe a D70-14 was used and that is 25.4" tall.
For me it seems like a big difference. Anyone who knows if the speedometers were setup with different gears depending on the tire size?
And should I go for 26.8" or 25.4" tall tires?
