    does anyone know if a 295/50 15 Goodrich Radial T/A will fit with a 15 x 9 wheel on the back of a 1968 Charger? Will be putting 245/60 15 on the front with 15 x 8 wheels.

    Do you have your sizes mixed up? Why a 235 out back and a 245 up front? Either will fit on a 68-70 b body easily.

    The 235 is a 50 series. The 245 is a 60 series.

    I did mess that up. The sizes should be 295/50 on the back and 245/60 on the front.

      Easy way to check for clearance place a straight edge on the hub face and measure tonylur first obstruction frame side and fender side. Run a search for “tire size” in the search bar here you’ll see endless threads.

      Thought so, 295 will fit make sure to get your backspacing right, see instructions above on how to measure clearance.

      I am running 245's on 15x7 on the front and 295's on 15x10 on the rear of my Charger. Backspacing is key on the rear. Measure for yourself because every car is different, but you will be around 5".
