Hey guys, On my 73 I have 14" ralleys, what tire size for a 14" rim looks good on the car, if you have any pics would be appreciated. Thanks, John

I just want to throw this out there. If you stick with 14" wheels your going to be very limited in your tire selection. I'm not saying your not going to be able to find a good tire/tire size but there just isn't a lot of demand for tires that fit 14" wheels anymore. Good luck cheers !

I tend to agree.  Even though I'm not a big fan of some of the big rims that are currently in vogue, I do like the look of 15's on our cars.  It sems to give them a much more aggressive look.

you probably want a 235 /60 / 14 or possibly a 255/60/14 might fit

Thanks for the replies guys, I believe they are 14/7's not looking for anything that fancy just something that looks good. What I have now is to small 215/60/14  Will upgrade to 15" in future.

When setting goals avoid disappointment, aim low.

Here's a pic of my 72 with 14" wheels. Tire size is P235/60R14. When I took this pic last winter the car was minus the gas tank, trunk lid, rear window, rear seat. Only side pic I could find. The rear sets a little lower with all the parts back on the car.
