Re: QUESTION ON REAR TIRES AND WHEELS FOR MY 66 FAIRLANE

on a 28" tall tire, about 8" with a 5" back space... and it'll be tight from what I've read. Rim size doesn't matter as much as long as it fits around your drum or rotor.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
