      Yes just mini tubbed to the frame rails with the factory tubs widened 3”. There’s about 3/4” clearance or so to the frame rail. The real problem comes in when you lower it. You need an after market wheel tub that’s just a touch longer to fit the tall tires.

        Awesome thanks. Love the way it fills the wheel tub. Did you move the axle back?

          Rears: 15 x 8 Basset D-holes with 4.50" Backspacing with a 255/60/15 Cooper Cobra Radial GT
          Fronts: 15 x 7 Aero race wheels with 4" Backspacing with a 235/60/15 Cooper Cobra Radial GT
          The fronts run a little bit on the fender so I'm going to have to trim it a bit but the backs for nicely, the fender lip was already rolled but I'm not sure that it would have to have been. The extra clearance is nice regardless though.

          **Little side note, the trailer park style window should be gone by the new year! Was finally able to find one on eBay because apparently no one makes new ones.

                            hi kbsouers,
                            your combo looks good! (on my '68 b-cuda) I was thinking using 245/45/17's or 255/45/17's on a 17 x 8" (all 4), with 5" back space(most back space offered on this wheel). pretty much same brakes you have too. (Dr. Diff 11.75" disc fronts & 10.70" rear disc, 5x4.5 axles)
                            does it look to you that if you added a 5/8" (.62) spacer, (in other words moved things outward on your set up) that you might have fender clearance issues?

                            Thanks!
                            Dan

                            1969 Barracuda
                            Drum brakes all around, factory 8 3/4 rear (not sure what year the rear is though)
                            Fronts 15x6 4" backspacing with 205/70R15
                            Rear 15x8 4 1/2" backspacing with 275/60R15

                            Fronts were a little close during turning (approx 1/4" between tire and bottom of fender so I rolled the bottom 2" of the inside lip to get 1/2" clearance). If I had to do over again I'd went with a 215/65R15 tire.

                            Rears had to had a 1/4" spacer to get 1/2" space between tire and leaf spring.
