Tire size with mini tubs

I know it's been beat to death but ....

What;s the biggest you've stuffed under a '68 Camaro with mini tubs? I'm going with the TCI Torque arm/coil over set up and the fender lips have been rolled. Would like to stay with 18's but not opposed to 17's
What do you have for tire size, back spacing etc..
Thanks

Re: Tire size with mini tubs

275's fit great in a stock wheel well on 15 x 8's with 4.5" BS....Sssssooooo, I would hazard a guess that a 2" mini tub would move that 2" in making that 6.5" BS and a 315 tire on a 10" wheel ?

315s work well on an 11 wheel in a 67/68. I have 315/30-18 on mine.

Re: Tire size with mini tubs

From the Detroit Speed website:

The Detroit Speed, Inc. Mini-Tubs are inner wheel housings designed to accommodate wider tire and wheel packages, including tires as wide as 315mm (1967-1968 F-Body) and 335mm (1969 F-Body).

Re: Tire size with mini tubs

315 40 18s with 18 x 11s with my DSE minitubs on my 67
The rear end is narrowed a few inches too.
I might be able to squeeze a touch more in.
