biggest slick tire on a 68?

I want to use some junky ralleys with a set of slicks. Whats the biggest i can put on there and still be ok?

i have TTII's right now with 275/40/17's and they fit pretty snuggly.

Any backspacing tips i can do to get a bigger tire? i'm looking at the 10.5 BFG drag radials.

Re: biggest slick tire on a 68?

Hi- I'm sorry I don't have any info for you, but rather a question. Is that 275 tire fitting on your Camaro without offset shackles? I also want to put a wide tire on the back and want to know how wide without mini-tubbing. 275 is wider than I would have thought. What is the backspacing. Thanks

275/60/15 is about as big as you'll get and stay in the wheel wells. In slick measurements 10.5/28/15.

approx 10.5-10.8 wide, and 28 tall.

15x7's will be pushing it a bit, I would like to see 8's min. personally.
