Q: Reproduction Goodyear Polyglass Tires
I’m about to spend a whole lot of money for new tires to put on my 1967. I’m planning on coughing up the big $$$ for the period correct Goodyear Polyglass tires that classic industries resells. The problem I have is; which size to go with, the F70-14 or the E70-14? The car originally came with E70-14s, but I seem to recall that back in high school, (a very long tiome ago), I had a set of F70-14s mounted on 14 x 7 Rally IIs, and I don’t remember having any clearance problems then.
Currently, my car has Goodyear Eagle VRs, mounted on 15 x 7 Rally II rims. The tires are size P225/60VR15. I don’t have any clearance problems right now. As far as I know, the car is riding on a stock suspension, except that the coil spring pads in the front have been removed by the prevoius owner, so the front end may be sitting about 1/2″ lower than stock.
A: The 225R60-15 is a very close diameter to the G60-15 and F70-15 size. My 1967 has 255R60-15 on the rear and 205R60-15 on the front. I’m toying with the idea of going to 225R60-16 all around.
A: Make sure to get 15 inch tires to go on the 15 inch rims or\ replace the rims with correct 14 x 6 rims.
