Same. Is there something wrong with that size? Or if you are asking Brand...that's personal choice

The size you posted is the current metric size. Originally your car probably had G78-15 (off the top of my head) bias ply tires. The new metric system sizing was introduced sometime in the '80s. P=Passenger Car, 225=Height, 70=Width, R=Steel Belted Radials, 15=Wheel Size. HTH. -Jim

Yep, my 1976 Ford F250 has 12/16.5. Interestingly, wheel are still measured in inches. 14,15,16 and 8, 9 or whatever wide

See online or ask Discount Tire Co. they are good with tire sizes or plus sides. I would upgrade to a 17" alloy custom wheel with 225-255X45R17 tires. Staggered 255 & 275X50XR17 Nitto's on my sport truck shown.
