The 225/70R14 is too tall on front. I tried 215/75R14's on the front, rubbed the inner plastic fenders on turns. I would try a 205/70R14 front and either a 235/60R14 or 245/60R14 on the back. The 245/60R14 fit my factory 14×6 aluminum rims fine. I currently have 205/75R14 front and 215/75R14 back on my 88 Cutlass. I went with the taller, skinner tires because I got them with my 1970 Cutlass and I am chasing gas mileage.

Wow, that’s good information. What about the 225/60/14 on the front??

Brandon, didn’t we discuss this over text not that long ago?

Yes, either 225/60R14 or 235/60R14 in the front and 245/60R14 in the back. This is my 88 with 235/60R14 front and 245/60R14 back.

I sent you a text a few days ago because I had follow up questions, but I didn’t get a response.
We never talked about 225/70/14.

If 225/70’s were too tall for him, I wondered how the 225/60’s may have faired.

For some reason I CANNOT find any Cooper Cobra’s in 225/60/14.....only 225/70/14. So it seems like I’m stuck with the BF Goodrich if I want to get 225/60’s in the front.

You can go 215/70R14 front and 225/70R14 back. Here is mine with 205/75R14 and 215/70R14 back. Similar height but a bit skinnier.

On my Grand Prix, I was 215/70-14 front and 225/70-14 rear. Gave it a nice stance, IMHO.

Just went to 205/70-14 front and 205/70-15 Rear because I found a set of Cragar S/S in that configuration with new tires for $350..

Stance is okay, but for some reason, with the mags up front, the wheel wells don't look filled. And the rear 15" are brand new, whereas teh 14's up front are older, and a little crappy.. so I plan on getting two 15x7 5.475's (eg. not unilug) for the front and run 215/70-15 Front, 235/70-15 Rear. (Cooper Cobra's, specifically)
