I have a 67 camaro ss with 396ci/400 turbo & 15 inch cragar s/s on rear. Right now I have 275/60-15 radials on and can't keep them from spinning ( have traction bars ). I want to go to a Mickey thompson street/strip tire and I want to know if I can go to 50's with these rims.

How wide are the wheels? I would personally go with the BFGoodrich Drag radial tire. They seem to be better on the street and they have great traction. You shouldnt really have any problem switching to a 50 aspect ratio if you have a 7-8 inch wide wheel

it is recommended that you go no more than 1" +/- the wheel width. but have seen most ( me included ) go 2". just watch it on the turns.

you should be able to run a 295-50-15 its not as tall side wall but the tread is wider
