I have just switched to original mustang magnum 15x7 wheels from 14x6.5 wheels. Could anyone tell me if the tire size: 235/60 would fit in the car or would 225/60 be better. The original tires were 205/75/14. Thanks

I have 225x60s on 15x7 wheels on the front of my 68 fastback. If I went any larger, I would have to roll the fenders as it's really close now. I have 245s on the rear, also close. The car is lowered about an inch, however.

Thanks, everything helped a lot. I am probably going to go with the 225/60. Thanks

Have the tire shop mount one up and see if it clears okay. That's what I did and everything worked out fine.
Most reputable shops will work with you.
