What backspace would be needed for a 15x10 with 295/60/15 to fit in the stock wheel housings of a 69? I'm curious if anyone has tried this combo and worked? Looks like its been done before...






Thanks for your input

The car photo'd has 295/50/15 tires according to the site that did the photo shoot (not sure on rim size though). I know a 295/65/15 M/T drag radial on a 15 x 8 wheel (with 5.5 inches backspacing) works on a 68-72 Nova stock wheelhouses (provided that you roll the outer quarter lips and massage the inner wheelhouse with a BFH). Not sure if the 10" wheel would spread the tire out too far, but you'd likely want 6.5" backspacing on a stock length rear end.

Will not fit inside a stock wheel tub. The car in the photo would have to have minitubs and shocks moved inboard.

With an 8-1/2" rim it would probably fit. I ran 275/60/15 tires and 28" X 10" slicks on a 10" rim. It was a tight fit. With a narrower rim a 295 would probably fit.

Had 285's on my 68 for a while on 8" wheels with 4.5" BS. They only rubbed on hard turns and off camber bumps (like turning into a driveway)...rubbed inner sidewall to inner wheelhouse.
Pretty sure 295's will rub w/o some work.
