Hi Steve, When our cars were new the tire companys used letters and they offered Gr70-15 which today is 225 70R 15.
About the largest tire that will fit in the wheel well is 255 60R 15.
These tires have an overall diameter that is the same as the old ones 27.1 inches. If you get a taller or smaller diameter, in will mess up your speedometer.
