Another will it fit Tire Size Question

Need help and I did use search(I say that everytime I post)

Here is my setup and Im looking for Max Tire Size and Width. Also Keep in mind Im going with a hotchkis suspension package which will lower the rear 1.5 inch and the front 2inch I believe. My current tires are ungodly skinny.

Rears

15x8 4.5inch backspace/ Current tires 205/60/15

14x7 (not sure of backspace yet) /Current tires 205/60/14

Also if the hotchkis setup lowers the front an extra half inch will I have to get a little taller tire in front. Thanks in advance. Ill pull the front tire off later. Also if there is a website that will figure out back space along with lowering a vehicle extra Id like to know.

Re: Another will it fit Tire Size Question

If it's a '67 or '68, you should be able to fit a MT 275/60/15 Drag Radial, or a MT 28x10.5 ET Drag, or a 28x12.5 ET Street on a 15x8" wheel with 4.5" backspacing on the rear. All fit with no rubbing on my '68 with stock suspension.

So I wonder if I lowered it 1.5 in the rear would that still fit?

I think that would be okay with the 275 DR, but it would be close. I realize the specs show 28" for all of them, but the lip on the ET Drag and ET Street was closer to the fender trim than the radials. I think it's squared off more.
