I have 235/60/15's on mine. No issues except a slight rub on the fender on full turn in the front. So if you have 14's just calculate height and width based on the 235/60/15's and maybe stay a size narrower.

Yeah you can use the rings. And as wide as I'd go on that 6' is 245 and that's pushing it. I'm not sure about the rub in the front. BUMP. :beer:

If you're not married to the 14's, did you consider going to 15's on maybe an N90 Monte wheel? Rallies are always a good option, or in fact 15's from an 84 Monte SS........happy hunting!

I have 235/60/14's front (14x7)and 245/60/14's rear(14x8) on my 84 with slot mags. At first I didn't think I would like 14's but I actually think they look more "natural" on the car. No rub whatsoever with 3.5 backspacing. When I put my 15" (235/60/15)rally's on, from the front of the vehicle they look too tall to me and rub slightly at full lock.
