This was my car back around 1996 when I just put the 245/60R14's on:
I had those Goodyears for at least 4 years or so and then had to go to BF Goodrich Radial T/A's when the Goodyear's were discontinued. I HATE radial T/A's! The Goodyears were a night and day better tire, both in performance and looks.
Picture with the T/A's:
And yes, "technically" the 245 tire isn't listed as fitting but they work just fine.

It's supposed to but if you look at it this way, your going from a 215/70 that has a section width that is 8.5" wide to a 245 which is 9.6" wide. In my experience the wider tire made up for any handling issue from the wider tire.
