hey guys... pretty new here and i recently FINALLY got my aunts 77 G10 that she bought in 78 at less than a year old.

it has what im assuming is 15x7 cragar wagon wheels. they are unilug which i dont like.

i found some rally wheels locally and they looked a little thin for 15x7... turns out they are OEM van 6.5" wide rallys

which i think is a mixed blessing. my van is pretty low compared to my buddies 75 g20. mine hasnt been lowered.

can anyone give me some insight on maybe running two 15x7 in the back or finding 15x7 all the way around. (SF bay area)

as it stands the front is running 205/70r15 which is the metric size for the original tire. rears are 225/75r15

im thinking of buying cooper cobra 215/65r15 and 235/70r15 for the rear.

ive checked the wheel forum and didnt get much info except about trying to fit huge tires.

dont mind the dirty van. its been sitting and i havent washed/buffed it yet.

Wait so what’s the question? Can you fit 15x7’s or those tire sizes?

Sorry... Yes I want to know if 15x7 could fit all around or atleast in the back. I don't mind the stock size but I'm sure 15x7 would be better for road use. I read that 15x8 could rub in the front. Since I'm already low I don't want to hit anything on bumps/turns.

Thanks. I think it's a factory conversion van. It has a fold down bench, ice box, little sink and a storage closest. She bought it off of the original owner and took over payments on it. I like that it's a 250ci van. Working on it is much easier than a V8. I think it has a 3.08 rear. Laggy at first but the instant torque from the inliner helps.

There could be a number of reasons your van feels “low”. Worn out suspension and lots of weight would be my first guess.

I had a g20 with 15x7s on 245/60/15’s. I know you can fit 8’s as I’ve seen many vans with those and wider.

Well my van is a G10 shorty. Only 4800lbs gvw. I don't think it's worn out just the way it sits. It has almost nothing in it.

My buddies G20 sits alittle higher which seems normal. Alot of G10s I see online look around the same height.

I’ve seen 15x9’s too. It’s a big reason why fender flares exist.
