back then they didn't have sizes. ex: LT235/75-R15. they had numbers and letters. I asked this question before, too. someone posted a chart of it. let me see if I can find the thread. if I can find it I'll post it.

Conversion to today's sizes would be 215,225 or 235/75-R15s

77custom408, if someone jumps in and tells you what sizes were available then go to the link and decode the numbers.

Yeah, well I found this thread from Google, trying to figure out what stock was for my 77 f100 2wd. Guy sold it to me has 235/75r15 on the back 205 somethings on the front. I have the other half of the 235 set, but I was just curious what they were sold with, and what that would be in radial.

The "r" after the the 75 indicates that they are radial.

The original tire size on you 77 F100 was probably G78-15, that was the standard size, H78-15's were optional.
G78-15 modern radial equivalent is 215/75R15, the H78 is 225/75R15
