275 on a 67

Good afternoon ,

I tried putting 275 on my 67 today off of my wifes 69 they dont fit ???? they were 15x7 rallys with a 275 6015 and I could not even bolt them up. They were touching on the inside part of the wheel well ? I dont get it I see guys with bigger and no mini tubs. I have 15x7 rallys and it looks like i have to go to a 255. Any advise please chime in I really want to put 275 6015 on the back of this thing. Its completely stock.

Thanks for all the replies.

Vito

Re: 275 on a 67

The back spacing on the wheel plays a big part in fitment. I have just put 275/40/17 on the rear of my 68 on a 10" wide wheel (which is a no-no) no tubbing, and it fits fine. I'm sure once I start driving it hard I will have some rubbing. This I will take care of soon. It's still in pieces! lol I have 5 5/8 backspacing on the 10" wheel. Check the BS on your wife's wheel and compare it to yours.

Re: 275 on a 67

Not sure if you tried this.Did you jack up the car high enough and put stands by the front leaf spring perches.Then let the diff down and remove the jack.You may be able to fit them on.

I have MT DR 275/60/15's on 15x8 Street Lites with 4.5" backspacing and they fit with room to spare. All stock suspension and wheel wells. I've had wider tires on too. Check your backspacing.

275/60/15 on 15 x 8 w/ 4.5" bs....no issues, plenty of room,stock wheelwells.

Pretty sure 67 & 68's have same wheelwells (minus the staggerd shocks on 68's)
