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

Nice Pic! What size tires are on that pic? Looks like you have room there.

Re: Tire Size

I'm figuring 28" tall, 10-1/2 which should work since it is 1"
less in width. Could maybe go 27" tall and keep the 11.5
width since the tire is 1" shorter than what you had.

Thanks, Nice Pics! From first pic, you seem close to fender wall. Do
tires stick out from fender wall. From 2nd pic you have no issue but
your at WOT and car is rising. Just wondering since when I bought
my Camaro it had 11-1/2 MT DR and you can see the fender well
did hit tire since it had a slash in it. But looks like I can go 28x10
but did not want tire sticking out past fender wall or at least to
much anyway and since my rim is 8" and yours is 10" I should be
OK. Once again thanks for your pics, show a lot for what I'm thinking
on doing.

Jack,

Do your 15 x 8 wheels have 4 1/2" backspace ?

The lip of the wheel openings are rolled up on my car. Occasionally it would rub on the outside of the tire. It actually rubbed more on the inside of the wheel well. The tires do not stick out past the fender.

With an 8" wheel the tire will be narrower at the sidewall and should clear without rubbing. Take a look at this thread: https://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=164572
