The Stickman "Fleetwoods has 15 inch wheels and no bigger till 1996. Hardly being on their way out."

15" rims on cars have been dead & burried years ago along with 75 & 70 serries tires.

The 14" was for past comparison. Many large cars in years past came with 14" rims.
By the late 80's 15" rims were common option on many cars of all most size classes.
At that time big cars got 15", smaller got 14".
The Fleetwoods kept the 15" rims along with a whole list of other parts that dated back many years.

1990 Bonneville 60/R16
1994 Intrepid optional 60/R16
95 Lexus GS300 60/R16
96 Continental 60/16
96 Regal GS 60/R16
96 Eldorados 60/R16
96 Sevilles 60/R16
96 Crown Vic optional 60/R16

2020 What cars have 15" rims? Haundhai base models and???
Do you ever hear anyone upgrade their wheels to 15" anymore??

There is still a Hankook in 235-75-15 WW and Tire Kingdom - which may or may not be in your area - has a house brand 235-75-15 in WW. Both are less than $100 where I am (west central FL).

Still no real luck on 235-70-15 in WW.

That's almost good news. I hope it isn't a mis-print. The picture they show is for a 235/75r15. doh.

Those are probably in blackwall.

I'm a WW only man on my full size RWDs. For a while Hankook made a 235-70-15 in WW, but no longer. I have a set of 5 on the 1996b Fleetwood but they are getting old. They still make a 235-75-15 in WW.

BTW 235-75-15 is Not a truck tire size it's the modern sise for 1976 and earlier full size Cadillac including ElDorado. I have a set of Hankooks in that size on my 1968.

I would use 235-75-15 instead of 225-75-15. if you can't find 235-70-15.

You can always get a set of Diamonbacks, but they are pricey. They use either Toyo orBFG Goodrich as the base tire and will put any size whitewall you want.
Hankkok makes a good tire and is for a touring sedan, not a truck.

I don't know of a Hankook (Not hankkok) tire in 235-70-15 in WW but they still make a touring tire in 235-75-15.
