Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just got a 1974 volkswagen super beetle and it needs new tires. I think the rims are 4:5
.the old tires are 165 SR 15 Can I put 205/60R15 on the back? I heard they will rub the
fender if I put them on the front. What are the best tires to use on the front and back and
should I change the rims.

I have 205s on my Beetle. I installed air shocks to raise the back end a little higher.My tires do not rub the fenders.But 205s are too big for the front.
