    Looks Waaay Better with these on there!
    I didn't like the Stance with the Lazy Stock Spring on it
    So, I put in the work and Boy, did it Pay Off!
    I've even Removed the Air-Shocks and put Gas Shocks back in...
    Thanks FABO!

            Nope. 275 60 15s will fit with the right wheels. They're tight, but they'll fit.

                The sort of neighbors we all wish we had! Lighting off the race car at 2am always seems to bother someone! :rofl:

                  Each vehicle can be slightly different due to production processes that were a bit crude back then, but, for most early A-bodies, a tire that measures 9" wide and 28" tall will fit with the right wheels and offset. Sometimes you can go a bit bigger, sometimes not.

                  I've got a set of 235/60/15 on the back of my 64 dart wagon. There's definitely room for more tire, especially since the wagons have a round wheel arch.

                    Nice stance, looks like you acquired a few more window stickers.

                      It almost looks like a 275 60 would fit in there.
