My 74 standard has 15" wheels, I THINK they're 5", maybe 5.5".. Not sure. Tires on there currently are 195/60. They're old and I'm going offroad so I want them off anyway. Looking for a good all terrain tire. Not having any luck on the Discount Tire website since it's acting stupid anyway, but...

I'd like some more lift. And I don't want street. Looking for a resource to dig around on, not necessarily the perfect answer since digging is part of the fun.

Maybe there’s aggressive tread in 205/70-15 size? Or 195/75-15 or 205/75-15 look at the heights and figure out what you can fit.

Here's a neat tire (not necessarily just for rear--I'd use them for all four corners), but you're going to have to score some 14" wheels for them:

https://www.amazon.com/Goodyear-Wrangler-LT195-75R...DSMBNASYRV

Outside diameter listed as 25.5"

Here's your wheels, ha ha (no, I am not the seller):

I have certainly been digging. I think the problem is availability for the most part. I've called a couple places and the first question they ask is "what are you putting it on?" I almost want to respond... "Why do you want to know?"
