    If I were you, I'd measure what you've got and do the math. Are you changing rearends? If not, do you know the backspacing on the current wheels? It should be simple enough to figure out if you desired tires will fit based on what a tape measure says. I'd use that info way before what someone on the internet says, since all of these cars are a little different in terms of tire clearance.

      I was running 245/60/15's on my 68 GTS and it was very close on the driver side. I couldn't get my finger between the tire and wheel lip. Pass side was not a problem had a good half inch. I'm also running SS springs so rubbing was not an issue. I took the 245's off and bought 235/70/15's a little narrower and taller tire as I'm running 3:91's. I have the 2 BFG's 245/60/15's for sale with less than 700 miles on them. Payed $350.00 asking $225. Excellent condition.

      Thanks for the tips! I did measure and it seems like it should work, but it’ll be snug... I’d sure hate to buy a set of 15x7s with a 5x4 bolt pattern and brand new rubber via US mail and find out they didn’t fit! I thought about the 235/70-15s too....wondered if they’d makethe wheelwell look fuller-being taller and all Do you have a pic of the 235s?

      001.JPG 002.JPG 003.JPG 004.JPG 005.JPG Here are a few pictures of my 235/70/15's on BBP Scott Drake aluminum mag 500's As you can see it's very close to the wheel lip. On the driver side it's even closer. With the 235/70's it is almost an inch closer to the front of the wheel well opening but not an issue. With the 245's there is very little room between the tire and wheel lip. I didn't have a problem with them rubbing as I have the SS springs and they raised the back end up enough and with the extra height and firmness rubbing was not a problem.

      Awesome, thanks! This decision actually stresses me out. It’s a big money item and can make or break the car’s appearance. I’ll post pics when I get it all together.

        Thanks for offering the used 245s, but I will buy new so they can mount and balance the set. Thank you for the great pics. Do you happen to have one from a distance so you can see the car's side profile? Also what size do you have on the front?
