 Post subject: Tires on my 68 chevelle
 Post Posted: Fri Apr 28, 2006 5:32 pm 
 
I asked this ? in another forum didn't really get a response. I Have 68 chevelle i'm putting together to race. I have a 355 w 13:1, th350 trans, 4.56 gears i want to run the biggest tire I can. I was told i can run 29.5x10.5 without cutting anything. is there any way to measure or has anyone done this on these cars?? I have a stock full frame and factory width rear end. Any help would be great thanks todd

we run a 29 by 12 d5 compound hoosier slick on a 68 with a 10 inch weld half and half backspace and had to cut the lip in the quarter and beat on the inner quarter
