Factory size is 855-14 which is 28.1 inches tall.Brakes, ball joints, shocks, tie rod ends almost done and it is tire time.
Currently the 300 has brand new, 30 year old G-7014 tires on it. I have been looking at comps and came up with 235 70 R 14, 225 70 R 14, 225 60 R 14, etc...
What are you guys running?

Even your brand-new-30-year old tires are at 26.8 inches tall!
Coker tire does offer the right size diameter but also very expensive!!
One of the main reasons the majority including myself went to broad market 15 inch tires to keep costs down.
I run 23570R15 on Magnum 500's..Not "original" but looks period correct.
At 28.0 inches tall,bang on regarding O.E diameter.
