Tyre query ?
« on: September 15, 2020, 03:03:54 pm »
Hey guys just a query on my new '66 coupe I recently picked up, I am possibly due for tyres soon its running
P205/70R14 on the fronts and P235/60R14 on the rear with whitewalls does this sound like the correct combination to be running for this one ?

Should I be looking at another tyre size combination ?
And can I get them in whitewalls any other thoughts on the whitewalls I kind of like the old school look myself.

Your biggest problem will be finding a 235 whitewall to replace your current rears. Biggest 14" whitewall I've ever seen in Australia is 215. The other problem is getting good quality whitewalls. Not too many around according to the tyre guys. I chose Japanese made Sumitomo 205/70R14 for the rear & 195/75R14 up front (on 6" Falcon rims). Front & rear appear to match quite well so I'm pretty happy with my choice.
