slick fitment

Hi all
Has anyone ever fit a 28.5 X 10.5 X15 Slick on a 1969 camaro?
I have 8.5 convo pro wheels with 5" bs - I do have my shocks relocated on the inside
A friend is giving me a set of Phoenix 28.5 X 10.5 slicks
Thanks if you can help.

Re: slick fitment

I ran 28X10 slicks on my '69 with a 10" rim. With a narrower rim the 28.5X10.5 should fit.

Re: slick fitment

I run them on my '68 and I think a '69 has more room.

Re: slick fitment

well they kinda fit on the drivers side but I think they would have rubbed the outer wheel well
(only had maybe 3/16 of room on both sides) - and the passenger side was hitting on the inside, of course I could have added a spacer but I really think its just to tight - and I forgot to mention I already had the quarters rolled when I had the car painted - I think I will just buy some Hoosier 28X10X15 they say sec width is 11.7
Do you all use tubes when running slicks?
But for the next two races I am going to throw my buddy's 26X10 Mickey's on it until I place the order.

Tubes - yes.

Re: slick fitment

With slicks and low tire pressures....it's always a good idea to run tubes...get a little sideways and lose a bead = not good

Re: slick fitment

I once tried a set of 10.5 x 28 Hoosiers on a 8.5 inch 4 7/8 bs on my 69. Cleared the stock wheel wells. Depends on the tire manufacturer. By the way, my cars (and any I've been around) always hooked much better on a 10 inch wheel and a 9 inch tire than a 10.5 tire on a narrower wheel. Always ran quite a bit quicker without tubes,also.
