Bfg Radial Questions

First off let me say this site is awesome. I've learned so much from this site in the past 2 weeks but my mind is on information overload Anyway, I've read a ton of topics regarding the biggest bfg radial you can get on a rally 15X7 wheel but after all the reading I'm a bit confused. I've read where some people don't have rubbing issues with the 235/60/15 on 15X7's but I've read other posts where people have had rubbing issues. I'm all set to purchase 4 BFG TA Radials-235/60/15's but I'm checking one last time to make sure that these won't rub. I have a 350 motor and all new moog suspension parts and the 6308coil springs with the addco 1' sway bar. If somebody can just chime in and let me know if I'm doing the right thing. I just don't want to buy these tires and be disappointed afterwards because of clearance issues.

Thanx, Matt

Re: Bfg Radial Questions

I haven't bought tires yet for my Camaro, but on my 69 Firebird (which should have identical wheel wells), I run 235/60's on the front an 275/60's on the back, both on 15x7 Ralley II's.No rubbing issues.

Re: Bfg Radial Questions

The consensus is it will fit, given that your front suspension is up to par. If it's wore out, chances are it WILL rub..........KZ

Had 245 x60's all around but had to change front to 235 as bucket covers were being rubbed. No other issues

Re: Bfg Radial Questions

My '69Z is all stock/original, and I had hard rubs at 12 o'clock on the wheel opening moldings at full lock in both directions with 235/60-15 BFG T/A's; changed to new 215/65 T/A's, no more rubbing.
