Largest tire on a 65?


Recommended Posts

First of all BEAUTIFUL CAR!  I think 225/75/15 but could be wrong. Whatever you have on there now looks perfect. I tried a 225/75/15 recently with a 1” adapter and got rubbing on the top side of the fender. I don’t think the tire would have rubbed without the adapter. I also did not like the way the tire looked . Too balloony and big for my taste

I too had 225/70R15's on my 63.  As Tom mentioned they had a tendency to rub a little on the frame , but mine only at full lock.  I've since been running 225/75R15's and to tell the truth the only real difference I've noticed is that the speedometer is more accurate with the 75 aspect ratio tires. No difference in handling.
