Tire Size
#1
My car came with E70-14 and the matching radial would be
P235/60R14. I want to maintain the current stance with more
rubber on the road. What size tire?

Thanks.

That is a good site, thank you.
One problem is I don't know my wheel size, 14 x ?.
Last time the tires were changed I asked the tech
to measure the wheel. He said "7 or 8 inches", thanks Undecided
I have heard the '71's came with an odd size wheel.

If you want to keep the current 14 inch wheels i suspect you will be limited by available tires sizes. I doubt you'll find a wider tire that will fit 14 inch wheel that isn't taller. I know that 245 6015 Used to exist and they will be slightly taller and wider. On the other hand these cars can take much larger tires than you have now

I'd bet that your wheels are 14x7, and if so, a little wider than 9" is about as wide as you can go. And that's how wide yours currently are.

You can go to 14x10 wheels in the back, but in the front, you are about as wide as you should be, IMO.

all of the documentation I have for 1972 show's 14"x7", so I think its safe to say that 71's were the same.

I used to run a 255/70/15 on mine. Several members have 275/60/15 on the rear. I have 285/40/18 on it now.

These cars will fit allot of tire with the rightwidth and backspace wheel.

Mike the standard would have been a 14 X 6 inch
I think the 14 X 6 came with E - 78"s
Optional steel rims were 14 X 7 - they came with the comp suspension upgrade - I think you probably have that option with the M code - 4 speed
I think you said it had a rear sway bar = comp susp
15 X 7 Magnums with F-60's were the biggest size available

Don, you are right.
after doing a little more reading last night, E-78 were on the 14x6 rims.
the E-70 were on 14x7 rims.
