Default Stretching the quarters

I want to stretch the quarters on my 69 Camaro.

I plan to have two different tires that I want to run.

M/T 31"-18.5" and Goodyear 32"-14".

Would opening things up 4" be enough for clearance for the 32" and also look ok with the 31" tire?

I went 6" for my 14x32's, and had good room . Make sure you've got the wwheel opened up enough so it isnt a pain to change itres or tires hitting sheetmetal. I say 4-6" will do ..DR.

Let us know how much you do.

What do you do about rocker panel? Just cut it and cap off open end?

I found out the tire size I posted was wrong.

The tires that I got are 33- 18.5.

I did some talking with a friend and he recommends 4".

Make sure they set the timer!

Those quarters sound like a winter project.

Yes sir, 3 minutes is long enough!

Winter project, that's the plan.

Talked to YB member that runs 33's and he said 4" is not enough, need to open it up 6".
