I've been told that the diameter for 215/75R15 is approx 5/8 inch less than for 7,60x15. This will only lower the car approx 5/16 inch. I'm in doubt which to choose; 225 or 215!

I'm considering the 215/75R15 size, as to get more easy tire change rear. Are there any snags using the 215 tire?

The freight, handling, customs and 25% VAT make them too expensive. I have found some Finnish made tires in Norway; Kontio Whitepaw Classic 225/75R15. As this seize is approx 20mm wider than the 7.60x15,I was afraid this could cause trouble.

As it's impossible for me to get hold of Diamondbacks, I wonder what's wrong with Cokers? As the cost to change the tires is approx USD 1.800,00, I want to make a "wise" decision! Anyhow is the recommended size 225x75x15 (in case of flat tire change rear)?

I think I go for Coker 225x75x15. Have anybody had any experience using these on 56 Clipper? Any recommendations?
Thanks.

Can anybody recommend what radial tire dimension is most suitable for replacing the old diagonal 7.60x15. White side Cokers?
Thanks.
