Will a 15by7 with a 215/70-15 fit on a 74 dart Swinger
The fronts may fit (if that's what you are asking) The rears will fit with a 255 60 and a 4.25" backspace. A little tight but no trimming and lip rolling on my Swinger but has pretty stiff springs.

Nice car. It was for the rear. I am changing my mind though. Would you know the biggest tire I can fit on an original 14by6 wheel for the rear. Im probably going with a 205/70-14 on the front

Do you know what is the the biggest tire I can put on the rear with the OEM14by6 wheel? No trimming (lazy)

Same as toolmanmike, but have steelies and I cut my fender lips to the pinch weld and used offset spring hangers for extra clearance.

I believe the biggest size one can purchase is a 225x70 14". That tire would fit no problem on a factory 5.5" wide rally or steelie rim. No clearance issues either.

Is 5.5 the factory width on a steelie ? That’s what I’m going to go with for now
Thank you for the info

Yes 5.5 x14" are the dimensions for a steelie that would have come on a factory 340 dart. And small bolt pattern. 4" bolt circle.

That’s the look I’m going for. I’m going to use stock wheels for now
Thanks for the info
Thanks, just to let you know I have Mancini XHD leaf springs with a 1" lowering block and have 1.03 torsion bars up front and lowered it till I liked the look, not sure how much.
