I just purchased a 67 base coupe. It has the original steel wheels with full hubcaps. I plan to keep/store them and put on a set of 15x7 Rallye wheels I have. I was thinking of the following combo:

front P215R60-15, rear P235R60-15

Comments? Suggestions? Anyone use this or have a picture of '67-'68 running this combo? Thanks!

It should look ok... but you probably could go a little narrower in the front and a little wider in the back if you are going for that "look" I had 235/60/15 in the rear of my 68 and they looked a little dinky to me. jmo

I just put 15x7 Ralleyes on my 69' Camaro, no hints of rubbing, I put 235/60/15's on front, and 255/60/15's on the rear. You should be ok in the front, as long as your suspension is up to par. I just put new big block springs on my, so I had plenty of room. You can see pics at: http://www.geocities.com/kz1000ltd/

you may check the archives. i think i remember seeing the '67 fenderwells are smaller than a 69's and the 235's may not work up front. i think the 215's up front and 235's in back you are thinking of would fit fine.

To Ken, I might try a 15x6 in front with a 215/65/15 rather than a 215/60. This way you will have tires the same height front and rear. You can also use a 243/60/15 on the rear.

To Boardin101, those tires will probably fit, it really depends on how high the car sits and the offset of the rims. Have you thought about using a 15 inch rim instead?
