According to the almighty chart:

"15x7 4.250 in. P225/60R15"

My new Cragars have 4 1/8 backspacing, so will
this limit my tire choice? It seems like a tiny amount but i want to be sure before i get tires. I was hoping to run P225 60R15
all the way round.

More importantly, would it make a difference on the front with steering?

Thanks,

Gary

I don't think you will have any problem mounting them on the front since you've adequate backspacing. Mounting them on the rear may be a problem because the added backspacing plus the tire width is going to be a close fit on the outside of the rear fender wells. They should fit but its close enough you'll have to mount them to be sure. Manual steering will be more difficult due to the bigger footprint of the tires. Power steering will be easier to tolerate but will still be stiffer than before.
