Hotchkis leaf springs and 275/60/15's???
I installed a set of Hotchkis rear leaf springs last year and ended up getting 16x8 rims and running a 255/50/16 tire. Well i never really liked the setup and running a 4:10 gear i really need taller tires. So today i installed a set of Weld Draglites with 15x8 and 4.5"backspacing and 275/60/15 tires. they do fit right now with nor ubbing but I didn't drive it. I have about an 1"of clearance on the inside wheel well and about 1.5" inches from the outside of tire to the wheel well molding. i can just put my hand all the way around in there. It looks badass but I am not sure if I need more room or not. Nobody will ever ride in the back of the car and I haven't driven it yet.
Questions: What is an acceptable amount of clearance all the way around a rear tire on a 68 camaro, especially the outside lip?
I want the low look like a lot of tubbed cars do but I don't want to cut the car up.
