Re: 225/70/15 Tires
I am in the same boat here with a 69. I lowered the front 2" and am running 225/60/15's, and need just alittle bit more to fill the wheelwell.
235/60/15's look better, but "buldge" alittle too much on my 6.75" rims.
Does anyone know of the exact installed sidewall height of a 225/70/15? I know the formula should yield a 6.2" sidewall, but I know in reality it will be different.
For example - I have 255/60/15's on the rear (8" rim). Theoretically, the sidwall height should be 6", but installed my sidewall measures 4.5" from the ground to the rim when you factor in the buldge. Will the 225/70's match the sidewall height of the rears?
