I have a 1967 Lemans GTO clone and am looking to get new tires. The ones that are currently on it are 225/70/15. The wheels are rally ii's. What other sizes would work with that wheel? Any recommendations?

I have a '67 GTO with the same rims and 225/70/15 rub on the front when I would turn.
Brand new Redlines I can't use.
I had to go to a lower aspect ratio 235/60/15 T/A radials.

I've had the same problem with my 225/70/15's on the front passenger. I was thinking of going with 215/70/15 up front with 225/70/15 out back.

215/70/15 will still rub in the same spot , you may get away with a 65 but it calls for a 60.
I tried the 215/70/15 and that is why I have 6 Redlines I can't use instead of 4.
The 225/70/15 will work on the back but not much clearance between the fender lip and the tire.

so the 235's are not to wide? The height seems fine but the width seems to wide.

No, the aspect ratio (height) not the width is the problem.
235/70/15 will rub, 235/60/15 won't.
225/60/15 T/A radial is what are recommended.
