Proper tire size for 5.0?

My car is badly out of alignment, but I have 215/70/15s in the front, and 235s off of a Jeep on the back. I was going to put the original tire size back on all four tires so I could get a 4-wheel alignment, and then it occurred to me--I have had so many different size tires on that car, I don't remember what size really goes on it. Can someone give me the original dimensions? Many thanks.

I think the 215/70/15's are the correct ones. I'll have to go look at my car when I leave here. I'm pretty sure.

Look at the sticker on the driver side door. It will state what recomended size is.
