Default Rim & Tire size?

I am planing to use American Racing Torq Thrust 15x7 rims and 225x60R15 tires on my .67cal. Has anyone used this tire set up?

I just picked up a new set of the American Racing Torq Thrust originals 15x7 that AR is producing again. Most Bullitt cars run the D's, but from what I can tell the movie car would have had the originals? Here is a comparison I threw together.

Thank's for the comparison. I think the TTO's look the best. What make and size of tire are you going to use?

How's your '68 coming along? Hope all is going smoothly.

Have not yet decided on tire size. I had read that the orig tires used would translate to a modern day 225/70R-15...not sure. In any case the car is coming along. Slowly but surely. My 390 just got rebuilt and everything is getting close. I am signed up to get it out to the Bullitt 45th in SF... so that's the goal! I will be posting more pics soon.

Can't wait to see your '68 in June. I too am moving along with mine at a steady pace. Time and money thing.
Will be ready for SF in June or sooner.

I have been looking around at tire sizes a little more. I am thinking of going with a 215/65R15 Firestone tire. The movie car wore Firestones and they are pretty affordable. Tire is Firestone FR710. Any objections?

Those are the same exact tires & wheels (TTO) I'm running on my car!

This is where it got them!

Ps..Movie car(s) had the "D's", but I like the TTO. I refinished the center sections with Eastwood's Charcoal Gray Wheel Paint.

Nice Mike! You have a link to any pics with the set up? Also, is there some documentation somewhere saying the movie cars were the D's? I have never seen anything decisive and an appeal to the movie footage is pretty hard to tell.

Anyway, glad to hear someone else is running this size/set up. Some pics would be great! Thanks!
