Took a while before making a selection as I wasn’t sure what would fit going from 14 to 15. Friend has an auto shop and let me put the car on his alignment rack so I could take some measurements. Yeah, I’d like to have had a wider tire in the rear as there’s plenty of room. Wasn’t wanting a taller tire as it makes the wheel look smaller MO.28" tall won't fit the front of a 62 unless you trim the front fender lip. 275/60 easily fit the rear.
Pretty much, yeah. A taste over 29" for the 255, a tenth of an inch under 29 for the 235.Thank you all, I want four of the same size tires all the way around as I have torq-thrust on the front and 15X8 steelies on the back with a 9X30 slick for the track. 33IMP, are you saying that a 255/70-15 & 235/75-15 are the same O.D. ?
I wanted to run the 285s on my 15x8 steelies, but they only have 4" backspace so I wimped out and got the 255s. 4 3/4 b.s. would have worked great on my car.
