67/8 wheel well openings ?

Question for you 67/8 owners running big, 31x18, tires. Did you mod the wheel openings or leave them stock?? What, if any, issues do you have removing your wheels ???

Stretched 1.5 inches. I'll see if I can find before and after pictures for you. There was no issue removing the 31's before or after.

I know this is a little late and also a different year, but I kept the stock opening on my 69 and use 32 x 14 Goodyears on 15 x 14 rims w/ 4.5 offset and all I do is let the air out if they need to come off.

Re: 67/8 wheel well openings ?

I'm in the process of installing Harwood stretched wheel well openings on my 67 Camaro. It has 31x16.5-15 ET Streets on it. The old quarters were stock with the front and rear of the openings stretched out in a sort of hillbilly fashion. It didn't look bad from a few feet, but up close they didn't look that good. So now I'm installing these, and think I might step to a 33x18.5-15 ET Street now, the car needs some gear taken away anyways (has 4.88s and runs out around 1000ft on spray) and I think 33s will fill the wheel well a little better.
