Anyone running 225/70/15?

Anyone running 225/70/15?
I ordered 215/60/15 and they still look slightly small for the wheel opening.
I might swap them to my Le Mans.
Pics appreciated.
Thanks.

Y'all think a 225 70 15 on the front and a 255 60 15 on the back would look good on a 77 malibu classic? Or could I put a 275 on the stock 7 inch rallys? Im getting cooper cobra gts

A 255/60 is the same height as a 225/70. If your using 7's on all 4 i would go with the 70s on all 4. There will be a sidewall bulge with the 60 being on a 7" wheel. Just my $0.02

On my '74 Malibu, I have 255-60s on the back & 225-60s on the front. I think a slightly larger diameter would have looked better, but it is what it is.... Very Happy

I'm running 215/70/15s and they are visually too narrow for the car. Needs some 8" wide rims with some 235 or 255s.

I'm running the stock size because I'm too lazy to correct the speedometer and too cheap to buy new wheels as the stock 6" steelies are just fine.

215/70 and 225/70 are just about the same size as the original GR-78 sized tires.

So do you think a 235/70 would be better up front than a 225? I only have the stock wheels as well so 255/70 is about all I can get on the back, Id love 275s though.

More pictures would be a great help! Im pretty much decided on 235 70 15s for the front and 255 70 15s for the back. Only because I can't put a 275 on my 7 inch wheel, otherwise id put a 60 series in the back and 70 in the front.
