Factory use of 14" x 6" vs. 14" x 7"
#1
I paged through the '71 Data Book today looking for data on which cars/options received 14x7" steel rims vs. the 14x6" - and came up empty.

The Data Book only lists tire sizes, apparently - and that doesn't help. My '71 M-code came with 14x7" rims, but spec'ed the smaller E70x14 tires, while the '72 Q-code sleeper coupe I've been droning on about here came with F70x14 tires - so what rim did the latter have as stock?

A base coupe would have been 14x6 - far as I know - but would the larger tire size have caused the factory to spec the larger rim as well?

If not, it'd sure make chasing after a set of steel rims a lot easier (read = "cheaper").

My '71 Grandé M-code w/toploader and comp suspension package
came with E70x14 tires. I assume the rims are 7", but don't know for sure.

They'll measure around 8" if you can get something around the tire. 7" is from the inner bead to inner bead.
