Re: Rim fit??
That's what I'm saying....couldn't you just stick the rim only on it to see what you've got? Jack under control arm, straight edge on rim face, and check at the fender lip.
215 tire will add about 3/4" per side,
225 tire a little under 1",
235 tire a little over 1".
Let's see....3.688 puts 3.312" "frontspace" I guess you could say.
I run an 8" rim and 235 tire on a '69 with 4.75" backspace, so 3.25" "frontspace".
Looks pretty close to the same to me. Used to run a 7" with 235 tire and 4.25" backspace.
As for stock sizes, the only '68 available with a 15" tire was the Z/28 and it got an E70-15 on a 15x6 rim. Not sure about how it correlates to today's sizes but I think around a 205/65-15 is close in both width and height? 25.5" I think is the height and you can do various ratios to get that. 225/60-15 is close to the height as well.
