Own a 67 Camaro SS/RS .Has the stock 350 & is all stock & original including suspension ! I am planning on purchasing a set of either 215/70/14 OR 225/70/14 redline Radial tires. These tires are sold by Diamomnd Back Classic Tires in North Carolina! Need to know what tire size is better for my car- 215/70/14 OR 225/70/14 ?? Also any feed back on the supplier & tires .

Go to tirerack.com and you can do 3 neat things;

1. select a size and get all the options from say 8 suppliers by price/performance/etc

2. get the real actual dimensions of the tire and compare it to your old measurements from an original tire ( use inflated old tire). This is key to avoid changing ride height, getting max road thread for the same overall width measured at the max cross-section and the latter for avoiding rubbing wheelhouses....not all tires the same size have the same dimensions!!

3. get actual buyer feedback on the tire,,,some of it ain't pretty.

Cheers

Stock is a D/70-14 Firestone 500 Redline Wide Oval that is 25.3" or so in height.

It should be a modern 205/70-14 tire..

Go from there b/c to me they are little-bitty buggers!
