wheel tire combo size?

12-11-2004, 07:02 PM
I was wondering if anybody would happen to know what size of crager ss wheels( i want to go 15x as wide as i can) and tire combo I can put on my 71 nova, without tubing it. If anyone could help i'd appreciate it. Thanks.

15x8 with 5 inches of backspacing. I have these rims on the back of my 71 Nova and run 26/10/15 slicks on them without rubbing. Your going to have to switch to a skinner (no air shocks) in the back though. Im on a stock width rear and I literally can't fit ANYTHING bigger without rubbing on the fender. Really look good to how the tires tuck way up under the fenders too.


Edit: Also with this combination you can SAFELY run a 245/60/15 tire and probably squeeze a 255/60/15 tire in there as well.
