I currently have 14 x7s on my 65 coup , 289, front disc brakes , and I am looking at replacing the tires soon . I'm on a limited budget and don't really have the funds to upgrade to larger rims at this time. I'm currently running 195/60 /14s and they look a little small on the car. What is the largest tire I can fit on my car and not have any issues with rubbing, etc ? I did do a search and found lots of different answers, but now I'm more confused than I was before . Thanks

+1 I run the 205/70/14's. Down from the 215's that rubbed. Only rubbed on one front and in a bump/dip sharp turn at speed. That was enough to switch. The 205's feel like power steering. Brian

On my 69 Coupe I have 215/70R-14 Cooper Cobra Radial GT's on the front mounted on stock 68/69 styled steel wheels & I have about 3/4" - 1" clearance between the inner sidewall of the tire & the upper control arm. I have 1" lowering mid eye rear leaf springs, 1" lowering front coil springs, & the Shelby/Arning UCA drop. I like how the 14" tire fills the rear wheel opening now.
