I've got a job for you guys.

Wish me good luck.
This is gonna be a close one. I fear I'm off a quarter inch. The new slicks won't be here until Friday. They are 28X12.5X15 MT's. The section is listed at 12.6" on a 10" wheel. Here's the wheel. It has 5.5 BS. I had to relocate the bottom of the shock. It now has 1/8" clearance on both the wheel and J bolts. If the tire rubs, it'll be against the inner fender. Cornering doesn't count, these tires are slicks. I've got a set of Hoosiers picked out with the same thread width but 1" narrower section. Gotta wash the burnout mud.

Re: I've got a job for you guys.

Fred good luck.

I don't think you will be able to fit a 12" slick back there and is that a stock 12-bolt wit disk or drum brakes. I thought a 9" slick was the tightest we can put back there.

Re: I've got a job for you guys.

Fred... If you have long studs, put a 1/8 washer on the stud before the rim is mounted. If you have an 1/8th and add the washer the 1/4 inch total may be what the doctor ordered. Maybe

Re: I've got a job for you guys.

Thanks Skip. My other set is ten inches wide on the tread. The MT spec's are narrower. Go figure? But they are only 26" tall (24" on car with 12psi) The side wall is only 4"! But they work OK. I just want MORE. Does that make me a drag racer? (And yes, original stuff)

Kevin, My studs are the minimum. I'll need new ones with any thicker hub/spacer. No sweat, probably time to change them anyway. And yes, It looks like a quarter inch out will work, but if I mount the tire to check, Summit says I own them. Can a tire be mounted so nobody can tell after it's pulled off?

And what do you guys think of this Hoosier? It's an INCH narrower on the same wheel with the same thread and a they're radial and don't need me to swap my inner tubes from the old set. That's $120 saved from swapping but the other set is worthless without tubes. Plus the MT tubes meant that I had to drill the valve stem boss to get the tube stem through the hole. Doesn't that wreck a wheel for any other stem? Why do they make them that way? And, of course, with the tubes still in my other set, they are ready to go whether to a swap meet or as a loner. (my son) hmm. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/HOO-17317/
Here's the old ones. Take a peek while I call Summit. The lead time for another set, if all tires come out of Ohio is a week. That's cutting it close. And I can refuse the MT's. I refused a nearly identical set of wheels that came with the new set yesterday because of customer stupidity. (wrong BS)

Re: I've got a job for you guys.

Based on the dimensions you posted it sounds like you ordered some ET Streets. I don't know if that will clear. It's gonna be real close Fred!

With stock wheel tubs I ran 28X10 Hoosier slicks on a 10" rim. The section width on them were right at 12.0". They would rub on the inside when I turned and rub slightly on the outside if I hit a decent bump.

Good luck!

Re: I've got a job for you guys.

And Steve, yeah, ET Streets. Also moving outboard would give me a little more clearance because the wheel wells were 'Portapowered' out by me 30 years ago. Can you tell? I picked up over a half inch.

Re: I've got a job for you guys.

Steve, you convinced me. I checked with Summit. They won't be mad at me if I refuse the MT's because I don't make a habit of refusing their stuff and also tires and wheels can be a bitch to size right. The Hoosiers are on their way. And they are close, from Nevada, and that means the same arrival, on Friday as the MT's. This is so much fun.

Re: I've got a job for you guys.

No, can't tell that you used a port-a-power on them! The Hoosiers will fit.

Re: I've got a job for you guys.

Fred, I just like you have always wanted as much tire as possible without butchering my all original sheetmetal 69 heres what works for me.hoosier is the only one that makes just the right size slick,its a10.0/29.0 15 and their quick time pro 29.0/11.5 15 are almost identical in size . I run them on a 8" weld wheel with 4 1/2 back space. they are 92-93 round (every set varies) are 12" at the sidewall and actually 11" at the tread although the wear pattern indicates im not using all of it because of the 8" wheel.My car at rest sits 27" floor to wheel opening mldg, slight roll of the factory lip and slight hammering of inner wheelhouse(nothing that can be detected from inside the trunk.At 11psi and a 135-136mph pass it will barely graze and blacken the mldng at the front of the wheelwell rocker area and the very back of the mldg at the rear lower 1/4.also rubs inner wheelhouse but not enough to mar or cut the sidewall.Been runnin this way for years never tore off a moulding or cut a tire.Out side side wall is extremely close but has never marked a tire.I cant imagine a tighter package .The 10" rim may cause the sidewall to bulge just a little too much.I might add i went through a lot of work to center the rear side to side and front to back in the opening.Sorry no picture posting yet,am working on it. eric

Re: I've got a job for you guys.

Sorry ,forgot to add the 275 radial will fit noproblem but if you really want them to work go with the M/T ET street radials . they are proven to be the best. Ive seen 7 sec passes on 275/60 s believe it or not.

Re: I've got a job for you guys.

Wow! Summit is COOL! I'm gonna refuse the MT's. That means Summit gets stuck with the freight both ways. I just called them and offered to pay the freight. They said 'no sweat, no need. It's not a high dollar expense'. What a great company!

Re: I've got a job for you guys.

Yeah, you say that but i see a pattern starting with you. 12.30s,12.20s ,teens now 11s. your gonna put slicks on it and go 11.50s .Next the track will tell you you need a roll bar.Then your good to 10.00s so youll build abigger motor so your almost in the 9s.Oh crap! I just described my last 15 years. loved every minute of it!
