I searched for this subject but couldn't find a specific answer. I'm having some trouble finding 235/70/15s. What tires can fit on these wheels without having any fitment issues? I do not want to modify anything or have to add spacers.

I was in desperate need for some rear tires so I went searching today. Only match I found was a take off pair of Goodyear Eagle LS tires from a Durango, they are 255/65/15 and fit fine in the rear.

What else is widely available for these that I can search for? Thank you.

Following tires spec for 91-96 B-cars:
235/75R15 (28.87") OEM Cadillac Fleetwoods with V4P Tow, V4U Limo, B9Q Hearse, or B05 Armour
225/75R15 (28.28") OEM for 91-96 B-wagons
235/70R15 (27.95") OEM for 91-96 B- & D-cars with V08
215/75R15 (27.69") OEM for 91-93 9C6 B-sedans (taxis) with LB4 4.3L V6
225/70R15 (27.40") OEM for 91-96 B-sedans with L99 4.3L V8

As the WX3/WX8 tire was a 27"-tall 255/50R17, I (nor GM, probably) would recommend anything shorter than 27" tall, or with a load rating under 98.

At the TireRack, at least, the selection options for 235/75R15, exceed what's available for all the other 15" sizes above COMBINED.

225's were standard on 94-6 9c1's with either LT-1 or L99's. 235's were optional.
