The modern conversion is 215x70x14

 F70x14

They were a common size for trucks and vans in the early 80s. I got mine at Sears and the W/W os te ame size as original.

I got my white walls from sears as well for my wife's 68, but I bought them one size wider than stock.

This brings up an interesting question. Why Whitewalls and not raised white lettering? Keeping her original looking?


This is just a question, not injecting my opinions Wink

Yep keeping it as stock as possible and it codes out as white walls. I bought it in 82
and it still has the original engine trans and rear end that have not evan been out of
the car yet. The stock Magnums were 5.5in wide so I did go to a 7in wide rim, plus
nobody makes a 5.5in magnum anymore the smallest is 6in wide.

How much and what shape are they in?
