F100 Tire Size Question

My '54 front tires need replaced. I have Broadway Classics P235 75R15 on there now.
Does anyone know if this is the correct size? or have any comments on tires in general?
Thanks

I think 235s should work well on your truck. I used 225s on both of my Bonus Builts. If you don't have power steering the 225s might work better on the front. I like the 75 series because the tire fills up the wheel well and and you don't have a big space over the top of the tire like with 60s and 70s...
