I don't think it'd be a good combination. At least, not from a performance perspective. Imho, a 265 is too wide for a 7" wheel. In fact, I've got 255/60/15 currently on an 8" wheel, and I don't like the handling.

Re: 265/50/15 ?????

I have to agree with dbx1969, the 265/50/15 is not a good tire for a 7" rim.

I have the 265/50/15's on my 15x8's rallys in the rear and love the width although you will run into rubbing issues with the back wheel well unless you mod your suspension. I have airshocks and heavy duty multi leaf springs to keep my rear up in the back.

dbx1969, got any pics of your combo there. I'm thinking along the lines of what you have shown on my 69 and just curious what it would look like.

It sists higher than what this pic shows, but this will give you an idea:



Fwiw, I'm waiting on new 17" wheels, but I'll be keeping the Rallys

Here's another view I posted in another thread: https://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=117963
