Stock front end and rear end. I have 15" rallyes both front and back. The rears are 225's. The fronts are tall skinnies I think they are 140's?

Here's my question. I only want to get ONE size spare that will fit front and back. The rear's are about 26" tall, and I think the fronts are just slightly smaller than that.

What are some easily found (junkyards) wheel size / backspace / width and tire sizes that I should be looking for that will fit both front and back?

I’d probably look for a 15x6 wheel and a tire that’s in the 195-205 section width and 60-70 series profile. You can look up online tire size calculators to get actual tire dimensions.. You’re basically looking for an overall diameter that can work for front and rear positions since you have so much stagger in section width..

There used to be a rally wheel guy at Long Beach swap meet that put rally centers in a VW 4.5 inch wheel use a tall metric radial (better tire than a space saver). If you have a posi don't leave it on the back very long!
