Whats the biggest tire you can fit in the wheel well's without doing any work.
My girlfriend has a 96 GT Conv. with some black bullet wheels, and I wanna put a nice drag radial on it..
I think its a 8" wheel, 5" backspace.

ill assume its a 17'' wheel? 315/30's fit but you would need a 10.5'' rim. for a 17x8 i would do a 275/40 at the widest and thats pushing it on that rim

Digging my old thread up, these wheels are 5.72" BS it says... Will the 275 still fit?
for the rear, yes. for the front, no.

You'd have to have the 6.18" ( or somewhere in that area ) to get a 275 to work up front without all kinds of interference. Sorry, old road racing memories just came rollin' in.
