Can anyone tell me the modern equivelant tire size for a 1970 vette? Maybe the dimensions too. Thanks,
Trying not to be too much of a smartass here, but the modern equivalent is the same as what it was back in 1970...Can anyone tell me the modern equivelant tire size for a 1970 vette? Maybe the dimensions too. Thanks,
It could be:I have 235/60/15s on now. I have experienced heaver steering than I believe should be.
I'm pretty sure the original width was 7" (considered outrageous in it's day - now about the same as my minivan!).
I went with 225 width tires (BFGs). I don't have PS and the steering is a little heavy by modern standards, but nothing excessive (except when the car is standing still, but then you shouldn't be turning the wheel when the vehicle is not in motion.)
Search the forums here for advice on tires - that's what I did - there's a ton of info on the subject.
