help guys im trying to find the biggest tire and wheel combo possible on my 67 chevelle, it currently has 295/50/15 bfg radial on 15x8 4 1/2 back space and clears good. i tried a 295/65/15 drag radial and no way on my 15x8 4 1/2 back space rim. my buddy has a 275/60/15 drag radial on a 15x7 4 1/2 back space and cleared with quiet a bit of room but looking for a bit more than that so was wondering if 295/55/15 M/T drag radiial would work if anyone has tried it. it has original 12 bolt and wheel wells dont mind doing a little trimming or what ever nesserary to get that fat look. Any help would be appreciated.

actually looking at the same tire for my malibu...i currently have 28x12.50 et streets on a 10 inch wheel....275's look good but leave me plenty of room for a bigger tire...the specs say the 28x12.50 is the equivalent of the 295/50's so i think im gonna give it a try...ive googled images of the 295/55 and seen some good pics to get ideas from...maybe that can help you....good luck

Yes I have a set for my '66 with a 8" 4.5 wheel. I am going to have to trim the lip some but should be good to go.

A 295 MT with a 15x9 5.5" BS wheel fit fine all around on my 66.
