    Got a lead on a set of weld 5 stars and tires

    Rear size is 275/60/r15 on a 5 x 4.75 with 4.5" offset.

    Question is will they fit and is anybody running a similar setup they could post a picture of. Thanks guys

    The 5 x 4.75 pattern will NOT fit. Mopars have a 5 x 4.5 pattern (mostly) except for the early A bodies and those were 5 x 4 (oof).
    Now, I can say, I have 275R60X15 tires on my 65 Belvedere (rear).

    Everything else is correct on those wheels you're looking at except the backspacing. Rears should be 4.5" just like the bolt pattern as Prop says. EXCELLENT shot of the black RR by the way!

      Thanks guys I overlooked the bolt pattern size somehow. Good think though cause I think I am going to run the cragars anyway. Is the 275/60/r15 with a 4.5" BS the biggest I can go on tire with no mods. I want as much rubber under her as I can get.

      es1758,

      I ran P295/50R15's on my 1969 Road Runner on 15" x 10" wheels with 4-7/8" back spacing. It worked like a champ. I used Centerline Auto Drag wheels.
