What size tires did your car originally come with?
Here is a rough size chart for old tires.
6.95-14 = 26.0"
E70-14 = 25.75"
F70-14 = 26.25"
Arlie, Im with you on the CS center cap, thats what I thought of when I saw them!

These are for the Highland green C code, came with 6.95- 14 (thank you for the conversion sizes)

Neil, thank you for checking the size for me. Geeh, will they look too small?

I worry about the width, I dont want rubbing, but I dont like a skinny looking tire.

Here's an online tire size calculator to play with to do some "what if's" with...
https://tiresize.com/calculator/
Check out the tire comparison tab to check one tire size vs another.

If you like the 6.95-14 from a ride height view then a 215/65R15 should be a good replacement. You can get a similar combo (to the one discussed in the thread) but with the 215/65R15 size for about the same price (mounting costs additonal)...

IMO the 215 width is just right... subtly aggressive (if there is such a thing).

+1 on the "Carroll Shelby" (CS) caps

As for my car I have 215/70R14 (~25.9") with ~26.5" height from ground to wheel well lip. No rake. I really like the look.

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.
