Tire size question for 71-71 Mach 1

(1/1)

Jeff73Mach1:
Using the Magnum 500 15x8" Rims, what is the largest tire that anyone has fot to this series of mustang without sheetmetal interference and without rolling the lip?

I am thinking of trying some 275-60-15's and maybe even buying a set of the BF Goodrich Drag Radials for a set of tires to play with at the strip this spring.  Too big?

Tim175:
When i bought my car is came with some massive tires on the back that were on a 15x8 rim. I'll check today and let you know what size they were. They filled out the wheel well all the way with out rubbing so.

Soaring:
The 8" rim is about the widest you can put on that classic without rubbing.  195 70's will fit just fine. 

Jeff73Mach1:
well I have 235-60-15's with room to spare.  But maybe my car is a Clydsedale LOL

Jeff1967:
I put Mag 500's 15x7 with T/A 225 60 15 and with 4 people in the car going around corners and road dips at a good clip, no rubbing at all
