Tire size?

Getting close to the end of my restore… but having tire issues. I have a pair of 215/65/15s in front and 255/65/15s in the back… Love the stance but the front right is hitting the fender well bolt on every bridge bump . OUCH I have a Hotchkis sport suspension BB 2" front drop and 1.5" rear. I am looking for a set of used front tires to try before I buy new. and suggestion on aha size to try?

Re: Tire size?

Before doing that try using button-head bolts in the fender instead of the standard head. I made that change and now it only rubs on the most extreme bumps.

Re: Tire size?

Sounds like the backspacing of the wheel isn't right.

Is the tire hitting the outer fender lip ?
