Recommended Tire size for 69 GT 350
« on: May 27, 2018, 03:45:48 PM »
Any suggestions for tire size in the TA Radials? I'm getting a set of reproduction stock 69 Shelby wheels and want to make sure I don't get tires that might rub.
Thanks

My car had 235-60R 15 TA Radials but it's been so long since the car's been on the road I don't remember if I had any tire rub.

I'm running TA Radials, P235/60R15's on the original wheels with no problems.

I ran 245-60-15s for a long time (Goodyear Eagle STs as Goodyear said that tire size was direct replacement in 1986 when I bought). I re-arced my springs as with bumps on Mi roads I could rub the sidewall in the rear on occasion. I now run Cooper Cobras 235-60-15s
