Can anyone provide advice on tire size for a 1974 Corvette. I have offset trailing arms on the rear and am wondering if 235-60-15 will work for both the front and rear. 

Thanks...

Chuck - You will have no problem running that size tire. I run 275/60/15 on my 73 on the rear without offset arms. I run a 245/60/15 on the front. You might want to consider the 275/60/15 on the rear as opposed to the 235 as it fills the wheel well in better. Gives it a more aggresive look in my opion. https://tiresize.com/comparison/

I've always run 255-60/15 with no problem but they're on 8 1/2" wheels with 1/2" negative offset and that only leaves less than 1/2"  clearance between the sidewall and the parking brake cable.  So depending on what your wheels are, 275-60 might be a problem.
