So I have a 76 cobra ii. It has a 9 inch in it and 60's leaf springs. I am going to be putting 2 more leafs on each side to give it a rake. I have 15 x 8.5 center line rear rims. What is the biggest tires I can run? Stock wheel wells.
Thanks.I thought it would be helpfull to have a list of combos that users have personally tried and know work Beware all IIs are slighly different and may have different fitment issues than yours Fox 4-cyl polyglass with 185-70R14 slight rub @ full lock Fox 14x6 steel wheels with 205-60R14 no...www.stangnet.com
I read your post. You have 15x8 and they look nice but I think it will make my car handle crappy because I have the 15x3.5s for the front. I think I will go with the 15x7'sI have 15x8, 4-1/2 back space and run 265/50-15s. I'm pretty sure I had to massage a couple locations in the wheel well like the area where the seat belt retractor sits. If I hit a good bump and bounce just right the outer lip will rub on the sidewall for a split second, but that's usually only if I had a passenger in the back seat. If you rolled the lip and went with a little shallower back space you might be able to run something a little larger which I think has been done. You'd have to go through the link that Matt posted, I believe what I'm remembering is in there somewhere as well as different pics of my car when I was fitting these wheels and tires that kinda shows some of the clearances on a semi-stock rearend setup.
