15 x 7 4" bs 235/60 or 225/60?

I'm currently have 235/60/14's on 14x7 with 4 1/4" bs in the front. This set up has worked flawlessly in my 68 RS/SS BB with 69 disc and original springs. The new wheels I'm considering are 15x7 w/4" bs (machined alloy, no custom bs available). I'm not sure if a 235/60 will work flawlessly, I'm fairly sure a 225/60 will. Is a 225/60 noticably smaller/narrower then a 235/60? Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks. Mike

a 225 will have 1 cm narrower tread and be .6 cm shorter than a 235

but you are going 1" taller on the rims and keeping the same series (height) tires, so the tire sizes you have listed will be much taller than the old ones

go to www.tirerack.com and look up the specs for tire sizes and you may find that you want to go with a shorter tire
