I believe that E70/15 tires were 26 1/4" tall. I use P215/65R15 tires that are 26" tall.

A D-70/14 is about a 200-70/14!

This site may be of some use http://tireguides.com/tiretips.asp look for the tire conversion chart '67-'75

Are you asking what size 15" tire will replace an original 14" tire?

P 215/65/R15 or P 225/60 R15 should work fine on a 15x7 factory Rally wheel. On my 1969 I currently run P 235/60/R15 with no issues. That's all the way around on 15x7 Rally's.
