Will 235-75-15's fit ok on our C's?
« on: July 31, 2009, 04:33:37 AM »

Hey guys, On my 70 Fury I have 225-75-15's which look good. On my 69 Fury I have 225-70-15's which look small. I don't like the "70's" and I'm going to remove them...My question: Has anyone ever had 235-75-15's on their C-body? Are there any interference/rubbing problems. Any feedback is appreciated and photos would be optimum in this case if anyone has any. Thanks..

Yes Stan, I know these calculations...thank you...but...but...My question is: Has anyone ever put 235-75's on our C's and had success?...as in no interferences....no rubbing...especially with the 69/70 Fury and 71 too for that matter...If so..got any photos?
 
typo above Stan?: 225-70-15's = 27.4" dia. 
                              255-70-15's = 29.0" dia. (these would look way cool but
                                                                       I'm pretty sure they would have
                                                                        interferences.)

They do not offer a 235-70-15 in the tire I'm looking at...just the 225 or 235-75-15. I guess I'm undecided on the 235-75-15 until I see a C-body with them on it. I hope Dan has a photo of his 70 SF with 235-75's...I'm wondering if the wheel wells look "too full".
 
Lea...Your 235-70's are essentially the same height as a 225-75-15...just wider...They look just right...That's another reason I'm still leaning to the 225-75's
Thanks for the photos... furyfever2009-07-31 23:41:18

Snotty....Moesy....Thanks a bunch guys....Both your Chryslers look fabulous...not only because of the "larger" tires. You've helped me decide. I'm going for the 235/75's on ol' Big Red...Here's the before photo...I'll post the after photo when I'm done. She just doesn't look right with 225-70's...been thinking about this for a long time now..It almost looks like I'm going after the low profile tire look....and that is not me at all. I got these wheels/tires setup with the my green 70 that I bought in '06. The guy that put these tires on these fine looking road wheels just didn't know what he was doing. They're outta here...
