Smile Re: tire size

A '67/'68 car can run a 9.50/14, mud&snow using 14" x 6" w/ 3.75" b/s stock steel painted rims, but you have to raise the rear up about 4" to be able to keep it from rubbing b/c it completely fills the upper half of the wheelwell!

This tire is about 29.5" tall!!

My car had a finger's width front and back when I had them on my car. And at 70mph by my speedometer, I was clocked at 82 one night speeding!
