I need tires, but I'm very STUCK!

We got new tires for the '66 back in '06 from Les Schwab, and they're finally rotting and one has a leak. They aren't stock size, I believe they're wider but they're on the stock rim. They're 215/70R14 whitewall tires. I don't know what the original size was, but I can't find any 215/70R14 tires with a whitewall, so I'd maybe like to know all the tire sizes that are compatible with this rim and car, so I can maybe find some with whitewall.

Try this. They are not whitewalls, but sizes in 14 inch are very limited.

Just went thru this and finally went to Coker Tire in TN. Prices were reasonable and I think tires ride fine. I am just a weekend driver tho.

The closest size to original would be 195/75-14 and in a whitewall Hankook is about your only choice other than pricey Cokers. 195/75-14 HANKOOK OPTIMO H724 92S WW

Mine came from Discount Tire. The picture in their link is blackwall but the description says WW. The whitewall is 5/8" wide which is more narrow than an original.

Thanks Tbohann. I went to Coker and found these. 3/4" whitewall, 215/70R14. And I don't care much about the tread, we're also only weekend (and summer) drivers. https://www.cokertire.com/tires/maxx...ll-radial.html. How do they look?

Those are the same tires I put on my 67. The pics from my earlier post shows them on my car. Don't pay attention to my signature picture as that was my 67 before I upgraded wheels and tires.
