Tire/Wheel Recommendations

Post by masonjarz »

Looking for tire/wheel size recommendations. Currently have 215/70 15s on 6 inch steel wheels (offset unknown) on my 1967 with no clearance issues.
I want to get a set of Torq Thrusts or Magnums but don’t want to go too much bigger.
I’d really appreciate your recommendations and PLEASE include offset/backspace if possible.
Thanks!

I'm running 215/65/15's on the front and 235/60/15's on the rear. I have Torq Thrust II's, 15x7x3.75BS all around. Mine's a 65, which has less clearance than your 67, so you could probably run my set up with no problems. If I had it to do over, I'd probably go 205/65/15's on my front. I do occasionally have a little scrape when turning on a dip. Here's a link to a thread on tire recommendations. In the third post down I posted some links to some sites for comparing tire sizes. You can use them to compare different tire sizes on different rim widths, and compare them to your 215/70's on 6" rims you're using now for reference.
