    Question What size tires will fit nicely

    I just bought a set of chrome wire wheels for my C. They are 6" wide rims. To anyone with experience replacing their rims and tires, I have a question.

    What is the maximum size tires I should put on the wire wheels?

    I'd like a bit wider than what was originally on the car, but I don't want to risk the wider tires rubbing on the inside of the fenders.

    Thanks for your advice.
    Thanks

    195x60-15 but be careful on the rear - the fender lips may need folding up to clear.

    I'm always careful when it comes to matching the right tire and rim sizes for my ride.
