I am putting stock 14" wheels on my 64 polara.Maz wedge clone. I want an original look. I was gonna go with 215-75-14. I don't care if they smoke off.Anyone have this size tire on a 62-5 mopar or is 225-75-14 a better choice?

most Max Wedge cars had a
7.50-14 (~27.7" tall) if they existed today ~190/90/14 work skinny & tall
or
8.00-14 (~28.7" tall) if they existed today ~205/90/14 work skinny & tall

VS. 205/75/14 (~26.1" tall), 215/75/15 (~26.7" tall) or 225/75/14 (~27.3" tall) twocents too wide & still not tall enough

So it sounds like 225/75/14 is going to be the best option because I am not looking to pay $215 a tire. Those look cool but not really looking for that period correct.
I saw some kind of cooper tires that had a white wall on them. Maybe I will go that route.
Does anybody have a picture of their car with either 205.215 or,225/14/75 tire they would be willing to share. Thanks
