hey dan - thought i'd give you some help you need it. does bigger mean wider or taller or what -what do you want to do -increase traction or contact patch -first if you want a wider tire i would go with 235/60/15 tire -that has a overall height of26.1 inches and a cross-section width of 235mm or 9.2 iches wide ----- your original tire has an overall height of 26.3 inches and a cross width of 205mm or 8 inches ---- we have accomplished this-kept the OAH (overall height) the same as the original and we have added width to our tire -find out how wide your rim is. i"ve done this switch before on an 1984 camaro i used to own the car handled much better after the upgrade in rubber size -also type of tire chosen is important
