Will it fit?

How hard would it be to fit a 29.50x18.50 size tire under a 72 c10 with 4.5 backspacing? Help me out.

Re: Will it fit?

It will fit just fine. No problems with clearance, just 4-6 inches of tire sticking out on one side................Only on the rear axle.

Front axle install won't make it.

You did ask about one tire fitment, not two.........

What would i have to do to get it to fit completely under? I'm wanting to put 10" wide wheels in the back what size tire would be better?

Well, first off, being the tire is 18 1/2 inches wide, the min wheel width will be 17 inches, dependent upon wheel diameter, the more the diameter, the less sidewall sticking out.

Now, let's figure 18 inch wide rim, add an inch on both ends for sidewall expansion beyond the bead, sidewalls are round. Subtract 5.5 inches from one side of the tire for the backspace and the difference is 14.5 inches.

Remove one rear wheel from truck rear axle and place a carpenter's square against the brake drum. Count out 14-15 inches out from flange and this dimension will be the tire side location in relation to the truck side.
