Not unless the rear of the car is raised.

i have a '68 and used a set of a buddies(28/10.5/15)and was very tight.all i can say is measure twice,buy once.good luck.i can say is that a 275/60/15 looks very nice though.

Are you referring to 10 rims or tires?

I was talking tires, a 10"rim is not possible(with a stock wheel well) unless it sticks out in the breeze,and looks dumber than Sh*t.

My understanding is that '67 and '69 wheelwells are similar in size and I just just measured my '69. There's 11-3/4" in there to play with. If the '67 is anywhere close then a 10" should obviously fit just fine, assuming the wheel baskspacing generally centers the tire in the opening. Right?

Your going to need to relocate the shocks inboard on a 67 if you want to use a big rim on the car, but if you do that you can fit some big meats under the car

Rocky.
the 67 and 68 is similar,the 69 is a different animal 67&68 only have about 11" from iner to outter lip and a 28" tall tire is as big as it gets,on a 69 about 30 or 31 tall. if i remember right.

I JUST PUT A SET OF 15X10 RALLY RIMS ON THE BACK OF MY 69 WITH 295/50R15 TIRES.
I HAVE NEW 5 LEAF SPRINGS AND ONLY HAVE TROUBLE WITH THE DRIVERS SIDE OUTER EDGE OF THE TIRE SCRAPING ON ANGLED DRIVEWAYS. THE DRIVERS SIDE SITS 1 AND A HALF INCHES LOWER. THE RIMS HAVE A 5 INCH OFFSET. THE LOWER SHOCK MOUNT HAD TO BE CUT AND I HAD TO DRILL A NEW HOLE APPROXIMATELY 1 INCH ABOVE THE OLD ONE. I HAVE NOT HAD A PROBLEM WITH CUTTING TIRES EVEN WHEN LAUNCHING AT THE TRACK. I RUN A 454 AND NEED ALL THE TRACTION I CAN GET. THE 275/60R15'S I TOOK OFF DID NOTHING FOR MY TIMES. THE 67 APPEARS TO HAVE MORE ROOM DUE TO THE HIGHER ARCHED WHEELWELLS. I HOPE THIS CAN HELP YOU IN YOUR EFFORTS IN PUTTING 10 INCH RIMS ON YOUR CAR
