    1974 duster, disk brakes, stock 8.25 rear

    Stock cop wheels from an 80s dodge diplomat.

    I was thinking P215/70/R15....it seems to be a Popular and easy to get size, affordably.

    They have that size in hankook optimos as well as a few other cheap ass brands readily available.

    Application: 100 % street car, no racing and no track handling needed. Drives to church and the candy store and many many highway miles on the 35 mile commute to work and back.

    What do you guys think, is that a size that will work.?

      If it was "ME", I'd go up ONE more size. The 225/70/15 is the size ALL cop cars used to use back in the day. It's a good all around size for general performance driving and if it will fit (and I think it will) that would be a nice size to go with. Also plentiful and affordable.
