Hey, im just trying to figure out if 235/60/15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As will fit all the way around an 83 Mustang GT. If anyone has any info let me know. Thanks, Mike

tirerack.com sells tires in the size of 225/60R15 and 255/55R16. I would not know if a 235 would fit on the rim(stayed sealed) since a 225 is the largest optional tire size offered. But with a 255/55R16 fitting the wheelwell, then a 235 will also fit. It is really just a question of fitting a stock 15" rim that I can't answer. But you will not have any clearance problems. I would call your nearest Ford dealership and ask them if they know if the 235 fits on the rim and clears the wheelwell alright.

i just checked at tires.com and they have listed for a 1985 GT optional tire size of 235/50R15. I am pretty sure you have same rims as an 85 in regards to its width. That would mean that a 235 would fit securely on your rim and not have any sealing problems.

235/60R15 will fit your OE wheels. They will appear slightly more "buldged" or rounded on the wheels than the 225's, but will not effect the performance of the tires. You may encounter slight rubbing or fender clearance interferance on the fronts in a full lock steering position. i.e. front wheels turned as far as the steering will go, say pulling in or out of a parking space. Though there should be no interferance under normal driving.
