I have a '67 Convert with original 14x6 rallys. Over the winter I am going to put on Cragar SS's with BFG T/A's. My buddy has two 275-60-15's already mounted on 15x7 SS's that have never seen the road. (I can get them at a real good price.) I mounted one on the rear to check the fit. Looked good, good clearance with no indication of any problem while sitting. I didn't drive it fearing scraping the tire. I put my hand over the tire and had him push up and down on the rear bumper. At the lowest point, the fender lip was starting to touch/pinch my fingers, but not crush them. Would that be enough clearance to avoid any rubbing under normal driving conditions? If not, am debating having new leafs made with a 1" rise or going with a narrower tire. Any thoughts?
