Hi All,

I've read the threads that I could find on the right tires, and I still have a question.

The current tires I have are Coker Classic radials that were put on in 2003 (!) and it's more than time for a replacement. The tires on there are 215/75R14. I could get replacements in the same size or 800/14s, but would those have been correct for a '58 Belvedere Sport Coupe?

If possible I'd like to put on Bias Ply Firestones, which I believe were OE, but those only come in 750/14. Would those fit on the same rim? Or should I stick to an 800 and go with a Good Year bias-ply or American Classic bias-ply looking radial?

Thanks for the guidance!

The 750/14 are most likely the standard size tire the car came with. I believe the 800s were reserved for station wagons.

I have the American Classics on my 58 Belvedere. I've been very happy with them. So I would get those.

I have American Classics 215/75/14 with 2 1/2 white walls on my 58 plymouth for years they look good, ratio is perfect in my opinion.

Thanks everyone. Maybe I'll stick to the 215 size then. But would anyone know if that rim works for a 750, too?

The rim should be perfectly fine.
