PostSubject: Wide wheels/tires   Thu Apr 09, 2015 10:59 pm

Does anyone know how wide a wheel/tire combo  will fit the rear of a 58 without modification?  I've got the stock wheels with 215/70 14 wide whites now, but I'd like to move up to a wider wheel and tire, I was thinking of chrome reverse/smoothies for everyday and keeping the stock wheels and whitewalls for shows. Any ideas or help would be appreciated, Thanks!

I used 275/60sr15 on the rear and 235/70r15 on the front using the wider police wheels with no issues.
