tire fitment?

Is there any reason I wouldn't be able to put 225/60/15 tires on my 89 2.3 notch? If they won't fit can I correct it with wheel spacers? How big of wheel spacers would I need if so?
yes I've used google
I will be grateful for any help
Thank you

I just noticed that this went unanswered. Yes you can fit 225 60 15's without any issues, in fact they were an original size on early GT's. Most pick your part and pick and pull yards will have a few swap-able wheel and tire packages for your Mustang. If you are willing to do some part swapping, both SN95 and S197 5 lug Mustangs make nice additions on a 4 cylinder Fox. Mike89us did a nice how-to on a low buck 5 lug conversion you might be interested in.

See link.

That was one of the first things I did on my old car, I got some 10 holes with 225/60R15's on them. Nothing extra required to fit, and way better than the pizza cutters they usually come with.

I had the 10 holes and 225 gator backs on my 84 2.3 turbo. Felt like a different car with them. You'll love em!

I don't have the time for a 5 lug yet. yet.
but I got the wheels with tires for cheap and I hated what was on there.
they feel great though thanks to all that gave input

OHC230 what's the best 16" tire that would fit my 1991 mustang being it's the first year of the bigger wheel wells ? Would like to squeeze the wheel well gap as much as possible.
