Best tire size for stock 15" rims with dog dish & rings
#1
So my back tires are balding on the M-code. :d I'm running the original rims, dog dishes & trim rings. Current size is 245/60R15 in an off brand. I can go with this size again but is this the best size? What else can I run? I want to use the same size for front & rear.

My Mustangs:
71 M-code Mach 1, Medium Blue/White Sport, 4R70W, 3L50, Factory Ram Air.
72 Q-code Mach 1, Pewter/Black Sport, 4-spd, 3L25.
65 Convertible, Britney Blue/White/White, more modified than original.
05 Convertible, Legend Lime/Tan/Tan, future classic??

I am running 235/60-15 Radial TAs on all 4. They seem to be the perfect size for me. I was told that it is equal to the F60-15 that it came with.

Thanks. That's the size tirerack.com said was the correct size. The 245/60s look slightly tall but the width is good. The speedo is dead on accurate too with the 245s. I may give the 235s a try since that would be the most original size. I saw the side shot of your car in your garage. Looks great! Could you please post a pic showing the rear of your car to see what the width looks like?

Don if you have the small center hole 15 inch steel wheels, they are worth some decent money

The M code would not have come with them, it would have had 14's

The 15 inch steel ones were on 70 and 71 Boss cars , 71 429 mustangs.
Hard to find them

Here is a rear shot. See what you think. There is room for bigger, but I wanted to stay with original sizes and wanted the same size on all 4.

My opinion 235/60s fit well on 67-70s. On 71-73s the 245/60s just fill the wheel wells up a little better. I put 235s on my Grandé and was disappointed with the look. Then I stepped up to the 245s and thought it look just right.Cool I got a good deal on a used set of 235 BFGs for my Mach 1 which I let my brother use on his Ranchero. I think they look fine on that big car/truck.Big Grin Here is a pic of my brothers 70 Boss 302 it has 235s up front and 245s on the back for now. He plans on buying a new set of 235 BFG T/As when it hits the street. I would not go any smaller than 235s.
