Just got tires mounted, what a pain! I got home and put right on with no problems. They are close, maybe .5 - .75 (a finger), but no mods and no rubbing.

Doug I guess that if the 285/60/15 fit I should be OK with a set of 275/60/15 Mickey Thompson drag radial's on 15/8 Weld Racing wheels, on my 67 Right?

Jack 4.5" back space ? then absolutely.

The 285's I'm running are American Racers and are SHT's (short) 27.4x11.5 so they are close and at full droop hit the shocks.No big deal IMO.

Just realize that they will not tuck up into the wheelwell in that size and backspace. So your car has to be high enough in the rear to never come down on the tire.

I have about 3" or so between top of tire and wheelwell. Haven't got to "test launch" yet , but doubt the rear will sink 3+".

67 & 68's are round wheelwells and 69's are squared off. Thats where/why they tuck.

How can I get a look at these tires? Is there a web site I could go to or did you buy them direct?

A Civic with a turbo the size of your head at 10,000rpm will never sound as impressive as a blown big-block at idle.

I got mine from http://www.americanracetires.com/index.html but it only shows sizes. I did a search on American Racer tires and found a lot of links. Had one of them send lititure, showed size and tread. Mine have the GG tread.
