Guys,
today I would order a set of new tires for my BRW, I used to run Goodridge 235/70 R 15 103H on the original wheels. They are all season tires, Maybe not the best choice, but less expense with changing them after the autumn, unfourtunately I have no second set of wheels…Over here in Germany, the winters are much milder than 20 years before…..
Now I was scared about I didn´t find them again, does anyone know where and what brand  I can source yet all seasons tires with this size?

I've run General Altimax 235 70 15 on several wagons and had good luck with them. They should be available in Europe. They are available through Walmart and Tire Rack. See:

Thanks, I`m gonna try to find a local tire rack dealer over here. I´ve found out in the meantime that there are some summer tires available,  unfortunately China brands, and new affordable wheels for the BRM are available as well from Rockauto. I´m thinking about providing a new set for summer tires and us the the old for winter.

For summer tires, check out kumho, hankook, firestone and uniroyal tires. They have tires available in that size.

I have been running 235/75/15s on my OCC, and the speedometer is more accurate with them. They are a truck tire, but are not harsh.

The AltiMAX RT43 -- 235/70R15  mounted on 15"x8" Chevy Rally wheels.  I've been running them since April 2013. Wonderful tire, smooth quiet ride, speedometer is dead accurate.

Hmmm... according to the sticker on my car ('96 Caprice) the OEM tire size was 225/75/15.  If so, the the 235/70/15 is slightly closer in revolutions per mile than a 235/75/15.

However, if you push the car to at least 100 mph on any city street, the police can provide a free speedometer calibration service Very Happy

The 91-93s have mechanical VSSs, and they are less accurate than the electronic ones on the 94-96 models, because you can only adjust them in about 3 MPH increments. The original error is about 6-8 MPH fast, so the larger tire partially makes up the error.
