I have a stock all original 86 mustang GT convertible. I am trying to buy tires. I like the Cooper Cobra GT's. Does anybody know if a 225 70 15 tire will fit on all 4 wheels without rubbing? Let me know. Thanks for the help
I believe that (working from memory here, it's morning, and I'm only halfway through a cup of coffee) Cooper has a 245/55R15 that fits "perfectly" and without modification, on a 4-eye Fox.
I can just about guarantee you that you will appreciate the difference it makes in the look of the stance. It's been a long time and I think the overall height of the tire is slightly less and made the speedo needle 3 to 5 MPH higher than actual.
That little bit of extra width combined with the slightly lower profile makes it look like you lowered the car off of the factory truck springs.
