Re: Original Tyre Size on 1966 2 Door ? recommended Tire sizes today?
Small V8 Falcons came with 8 inch. In 1966 and later the Falcons grew wider and sized like the Fairlane, thus the Maverick is not a good substitute. The strength of rears is in the centers and axles for the 8 inch not the housing.
You could probably go to one of the online tire stores and find the original size for your car. That size you posted sounds correct. P205/75R14's were on my car when I got it but, they were not the original size I'm sure.
