They came with 6:00 X 14 and 6 ply rating. In today's sizes that's 175/70R14 and 23.6" tall and 6.9" wide. You do not want larger as in taller tires. This will upset your gearing making the tiny J13 struggle to turn them leading to poor performance and speedometer error.


You can go wider.

A 225/55R14 is 23.74" tall and 8.8" wide.  This is 2" wider than the stock tire. Hold a tape measure and center the 4" mark in the middle of your tread and see if it will clear the leaf spring and stay inside the fender lip.
