Need the size and alternate tire sizes as provided from the factory for a 1989 Ford Mustang Hatchback with a 2.3 liter engine and 5 speed transmission. I think it's an LX. I don't have an owners manual and the car is not near me right now so I cannot look at the tire information plate on the car.

Can somebody please provide me with that information?

thanks,

LarryR : )

Size is 205/70-R14. You could probably put some 215/70-R14 tires on there without any problems.

That size is for the base Polycast wheel and I believe it might have been 195/75 -14

The optional aluminum wheel (standard on 5.0 LXs) wore a 225/60 -15
