I have a 70 nova Iam running 8Inch ralley rim how wide of tire can I go maybe later I wanted 17x 8 in front and 9.5 rear I want to run a 275 60 17 on rear let me know thanks
the only way to know is to measure.. cut slabs of styrofoam. stick them to the tire. lower the car to ride height.. see how much clearance there is.. this gives you the ability to know in an hour exactly how much room you actually have.. a friend of mine used a screw type jack to gently spread the wheel wells of his fairlane.. yes.. this moved his fender out slightly.. but he wedged in some wider rear tires.. and there are a lot of mods to that car.. he just drives the heck out of it.. does not bother with the looks as much..he picked up some used almost worn out tires to try the fit.. why bother screwing up a brand new set if something snags..
oh.. just in case you want to go wider without going to a full tub job.. http://www.superchevy.com/technical/paint_body/bodywork/sucp_0908_1972_nova_wheel_wells/viewall.htmlhttp://www.chevyhiperformance.com/tech/paint_body/bodywork/1003chp_1973_chevy_camaro_wide_wheel_tub_install/viewall.html
