    Hm 5 1/4 puts the wheel about 1 inch from springs and mine are offset shackles..seems a little close..4.5 backspace probably better

    Body is stock as the springs and all else.
    Don';t know if I could fit anything much wider without getting to close to the inner fender well. 210.JPG 211.JPG 212.JPG

      All i know is that a 10.5x28-15 slick on a 8.5 x 15 centerline is very tight, about a finger to the fender and a finger to the spring. A 10.00x28-16 slick on a 4.5 b.s. tt2 fits lots better. (62 savoy).

      I have been looking at Mickey Thompson S/R radials for the rear 28x12x15. They only offer 8 inch wide in 27 inch for the front. I think that’s a tad skinny for me. Been toying with the 28x12x15 on back with Sportsman S/T 225-70/15 on front. Not sure about 2 different tread patterns. What do you guys think? I’m sure there are some guys doing that.

        Car looks great. I assume it's got the stock length rear , what is the rear wheel back space ?. What size front tires are you running?.

          All 275 tires are not the same. I have both the Mickey Thompson ET Street Pro and the S/T in 275/60/15 sizes. The Pro's are bigger and on an 8" steelie. They are all the tire you will ever need! I've been 1.36 60 ft. with them on my street car and they are amazing!

            BF Goodrich T/A Radial. Think they’re still available.
            285/R70-15. Off the top of my head, about 30” tall, approx !!” Cross section, around 9.5” tread, on an 8” rim.
            My old Polara, back in about ‘96.

                That is more than impressive quarter mile time! Is it N/A?

                  He has stated elsewhere that it is a low elevens car on the motor. The low ten was a nitrous pass. I don't know how big a shot.
