Back in the 70's I had a '69 that I put G60x14's on Western Cylcone II's (14x8) front and back! My current '69 has 235-60x15's on 15x8 rallies.

Which are wider? taller? For some reason I remember the G60x14's being wider and about the same hight. Somewhere I had info on sizes but can't find it!!! All help is welcome!

Seems to me that the old 60 series bias ply tires were bigger than the radial. Say a G-60-14 radial would have been smaller than the big bias "Torque Twister" G-60. I think the edges of the tire were built up alot more also. That would give it a wider look too. A G-60 radial would put the tire size at about a 215/60 to a 225/60.

I don't know about G60/14's but a G60/15 is equivalent to a 235 or 245/60/15.
