Is anyone running a 295 tire (instead of a 275) on a 15x8 Weld wheel on their 67-68 Camaro? I'd get a 10" wheel but it may not fit. I'd like to put a 295 or wider on an 8" wheel, but need a sanity check. Anyone?
What are the sizes of the front rims and tires? I love your car! I should of bought it when i had the chance. I have Weld Draglites for the back, I just couldn't buy the fronts yet until I lowered the front.
Thanks. I'm glad you didn't get to it first... My Weld Prostars are 15x5 up front, and 15x8 out back. I'm planning to get a new set of rear wheels and mount drag radials for street use, and put a real slick on the existing wheels for track duty. Just wondering if anyone else has a 295 tire on an 8" wheel?
Im running 15x8 Welds with 275/50/15's in the back on my 69 and it is all I can fit. In fact......I needed totrim the fender lips and it still rubs a bit on the inner wheel well. But my car is lowered 3" in the back. If you car is stock height you will have quite a bit more room. But I think the 295's will rub big time on the inner wheelwell.
I had 295 DRs on 10" wheel on the back of my car for awhile.It is mini tubbed the rubbing issue I had was the front and rear of outer wheel well. After replacing my chrome trim twice went to a 28" tire. Sure would like to put the 29s back on somehow.
