    I've had a bunch of 68-70 b bodies over the years, always ran 275 60 15's on the rear. Just curious if they will work OK on a convert, since the wheelhouses aren't as tall as a hard top?

    I think they would be fine on the rear? I have 255 x 60 15s and have plenty of room in the rear on the Coronet Convert, but the front wheel lip molding touches once in awhile on sharp turns. Might clear fine with a bit more rim offset?

    I put 235 60 15 front and 255 60 15 rear on my 70 Satty droptop. Plenty of room.
