Just a little clarification.
Sidewall height is a percentage of the tread width. So a 235/50 tire would be 235mm wide and sidewall would be 117.5mm (235x50%). A 235/70 would be 235mm wide and the side wall would be 164.5 (235x70%).
A 70 series may look skinnier than a 60 series due to the tall side wall.
A 60 series on a 14" rim may not fill the wheel well very well.
If you can, get the stamped numbers off the rim. They will be located at the valvestem. They can be decoded to tell you exactly what they are.
