    Question about wheels on a Chevelle.

    What is the biggest rim-tire you can run on a 72 Chevelle(stock dimensions on rear end and wheel opening) and what backspacing on the rim?
    Wasn't me.

    My brother had a 10" rim on his 72 and if I remember right it had a 5.5 inch backspacing with a 28x10 tire. On my 68 I have a 8" rim with a 4.5 inch backspacing and I have a M/T 295 drag radial on it but I have about 2" of clearance on the inside. The company that makes my rims don't make the right offset with their 10" rim. Good luck.
