Widest Tire you would run on a 14x6 Wheel


Stumbled on some NOS 14x6 Cragar SS wheels. They will look great on my 66.

 

Wondering how wide of a tire you can run on these. Car is 3000 pounds. It wont see any high speed cornering. Its mostly a street cruiser. I see lots of guys on the Dodge forums running 235 or 245/60/14's.

I see 225 is the widest recommended on a 6" wheel. Wondering what you guys have run in the past without issue.

 

Thanks in advance

Played around with https://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Tire-Size-Calculator

Check out the rim size they recommend

Thanks for the reply

Yes, I'm aware that a 235/60/14 has a recommended minimum rim width of 6.5". Just wondering what others have used in the past on a car that doesn't see road race conditions. Haha

Can you even find a 14 inch tire anymore?....

I put Hankook 225 70 14's on my car when I bought it. But you are right, it takes some searching to find a decent 14" tire, and they all look too "modern" for our old cars.
