    Default 79 Zephyr rim and tire change

    Hi folks,

    I need to replace the tires on my 79 Zephyr Z7 (Sears white walls from who knows when) and am planning to switch to new rims with wider tires.

    The rims are 14x7" with 0 offset. I'm looking at tires around the 215/60/R14 mark.

    Any idea whether these will fit without modification? Anyone put on a similar setup?

    I'm not sure what the original steelies' offset is, but it looks positive. The existing tire is 185/75/R14 and there's around 2" between the tire wall and the lip on the fender.

    Cheers

    Just got them on with new tires (225/60/15). I'm into it. Handles waaay better now.
