    The original tire size was a 7.50 x 14... I'd suggest you look at a 205-75R-14 radial in today's measurements to get close to the original size (slightly thicker/wider) but about the same height and will fit in the fenderwell and the spare tire well.

    The 195/75 /14s from mid 80s Gbodies are probabally closer to a 7.50

    I have a 195/75-14 in the spare tire wheel well of my 57. I can tell you that a 215/70 14 does not.

    William, I have 215/70/15s mounted on original GM 15 x 7 rally wheels on all four corners for my 57 210 sedan. Not much into the newer 17s and 18s with the narrow sidewalls. Too much old school in my blood I guess, LOL.

    William: If you are having difficulty removing the wheel/tire from the car, you'll have to jack up the car from the axle, loosen the bottom of the shock from the axle/spring, and then jack the body as high as possible and let the axle hang low to remove the rim/tire.

    If you are running 235-60/14 then your car probably has a wider 14" rim on it...? Confirm some of these things (rims, and goals for the car), and we should be able to help you choose a viable tire size...?

    Can you post some photos? That will help...

    Thanks friends for the comments; finally got the tires off by taking off lower shock bolt, & leaf springs then lowered the leaf springs as far as they would go and then raised the axle as high as I could get it the guess what? the tires dropped off @ least I didn't have to cut them off thank goodness!!!

    William? What size are the wheels and tires you're removing?
