I am running a 255/60 R15 on the rear of my 65. I recently purchased a 15x7 set of wheels from Centerline to replace the 15x3 runners on the front. I am looking for a recommendation on tire size for the front. I was thinking maybe a 225 or 235 / 45, but wanted to get you guys input first. Any suggestions?

With that rear tire a 235/60-15 will give you about 1" less tire height in the front and would look pretty balanced. A 245/60-15 would work as well and be very similar in height. Either one will work nicely.

I'd run either 215 or 225-70x15 My opinion is that a 7" rim would not look good with anything wider. The steering turn in response will be less as the section width grows.

Perfect, thanks so much for the comment. I could not do this project without you guys.
