Tire Size

Would a 28" tall, 10" wide tire fit under a 69 Camaro without hitting
out fender wall. I currently have 26" tall, 10" wide MT ET Strs and
would like to get more tire under car without tubbing. Rims are 15x8

Re: Tire Size

Yes, I ran 28" X 10" slicks on a 10" rim. It was a tight fit, with an 8" rim it should fit no problem.

Re: Tire Size

After researching, 28" tall only come in 11-1/2 wide which will be
cutting it close. Question #2: I can go 27x10.5 or stick with the
26" and go to 26x11.5. The smaller tire goes 1" wider than other
and the other goes 1" taller. Is any really diference on which way
I could go with these 2 sizes (performance wise)

Re: Tire Size

Sure is. The smaller the tire the lower the gear ratio in essence, higher numerically. I am running 245-60-15 on 8" Vette rallys and it fits like it should and looks great. What gear are you running?
