Re: 67 'Vert wheel size help pls
What are the backspaces on these Monte Carlo wheels? You'll definitely have rubbing if going full turn of the steering, lock to lock will rub so you'll just have to avoid turning the steering wheel all the way over. I've got 235/15s on my front on 15 X 7s with 4.5 backspacing and the outer side of the tire just misses the fender when the fender bounces down by about 1/8" clearance and I have stiff springs. 15 X 8 wheels will bring the tire out just a bit more.
