Hi Everybody-

I'm seeing that the tires for my car are 7.60x15... Does this translate to a 225/75/R15? The car is white so i'm also thinking whitewalls???? Suggestions and manufacturers??

I agree. This baby has Vogue tires on it now but i'm realizing that I can't go dropping a bunch of money on a car that I am trying hard to sell.

You are correct. The 7.60 converts to today's 215/75R15.

If you look on the Riviera Owners forum you can see a similar thread and what brands of tires are being suggested for replacements. http://forums.aaca.org/f177/bias-look-radials-388061.html In post #4, I linked a conversion chart.

However, most of that discussion is based on finding reproduction bias tires. There are however some references to the correct white side wall radials. Diamond Back, Universal, Coker, Firestone, and Hankook all have tires that have white side walls and come in the correct size.

Friend of mine bought the Hankook Optimo 724's for his 67 Wildcat. Said the white wall is about 9/16 wide. He got them from Walmart for $75, and they also carry them at Tirerack for $70. He bought 235/75's, but they have 215 and 225's as well.
