    MT 325 / 50 / 15's on 15" x 10" wheels with 7.25" backspacing on a standard width A body rear end will give you 3/4" side clearance. I missed the backspacing by 1/4" therfore I have a strong 1/2" on the outside and a weak 1" on the inside. This is also with Ford Explorer disk brakes.

    Tom I want to keep my axle stock also and have been wondering about this .Are you saying that you ordered yours 7" and they should have been 7.25" or that you ordered 7.25" and 7.5" would have given you 3/4" on each side.
    Thanks

    I ordered mine 7.5 inch backspace and I should have ordered 7.25. It will still be O.K.
    Also, My backspace is for a big late Ford disk brake set up with 2.5" axle flange spacing. A drum will be a little different.

    The 13.5" wide M/T actually measures no more than 13.3" with weight on it.

    front:
    15 x 7 with 4 inch backspacing and +6mm offset

    rear:
    15x 8.5 with 5 inch backspacing and +6mm offset

    will these fit? biggest tire I can run?

    go to www.tirerack.com and they have a chart that gives you the measurement of tire/wheel combo's that fit each particular car and also keep in mind that if your car is not shown useyour imagination....ie...66 dart may not be illustrated but a 74 dart just might be....I dont know that they are too much different for a wheel tire combo....Also, I believe that they also have a chart that says like if you mount a 215-60-15 tire on a 15x8 wheel with this much offset your tire wil be ___ inches tall...pretty good application./.....

    Re: New to All -Tire QuestionsAnd Wheel and Tire Combo's

    I finally got my rear wheels on the 70 dart today . They fit-------barely.

    weld pro stars 15 x 8 w/ 4.5" backspace

    MT --ET street 28x 11.5x 15 tires

    stock location leafs

    outer quarter lip is rolled in.

    wheels tubs moved in 2 inches .

    I have 1/2" clearance at the tire/ leafs and about 1/2" at the tire / quarter lip .

    these would NOT have fit without rolling in that quarter lip.

    To state the obvious, get the rear under the car with the brakes before ordering the wheels. 1/4" off on the backspacing is a big deal. After you trinm the lip and go for the body side of the wheel well seam removal, run a /045" grinder along the seam and it almost lays back by itself.

    11.75 disks with b body calipers

    front rims- i have 15x7 standard Chrysler steel wheels off a 80s new yorker- 4.25 backspacing, no rubbing at all on suspension

    front tires- i have a Yokohama 235/60r15 and they are an amazing tires and grip ALOT better than bfg traction t/as plus do very well in the rain as well- they wont fit on the front of a duster without modification because they hit the backside of the wheelwell but they will fit a dart easily because the wheelwell gos down at an angle not like the duster that curve around, a dart will fit 235s, 245s for sure and maybe even a 255- this is in the front

    rears yet to come

    heres what i did i have a 69 dart with stock width 8 3/4. i have 275/60r/15 nitto drag radials on custom made 15x8 cragar ss with 5" backspacing. the car has custom made brackets for the leafsprings to move them 3/4" over against the frame. the wheel well lip is trimmed and inside of the quarter theres a bump wich i carfully pushed out with a jack without recking the paint(crushed the bump just enough). with that tire and 5" backspacing is the only way i could se it fitting i have barely 1/2" maybe on both side maybe a 1/4. the car did rub untill i added a few leaves to my jcwhitney springs. it sits great now. hope this helps and remember dart and barracudas and dusters, ETC are different when it comes to this. ill try to send pics.

    PIc of 315-60R15 MT drag radials on my duster. I would say this is probably about the biggest you can run in the MT line with a mini-tub. Had to section the front of the quarter and inside of the rocker

    Re: New to All -Tire QuestionsAnd Wheel and Tire Combo's

    I finally have almost finished my mini-tub/spring relocation/brakes/tires and wheels project.* I'm going to lower the rear end from what is shown in the picture.* The tires are 245/35-18 front and 305/25-20 back.* I have the SVT big brake kit from Doctor Diff with the 13" rotors front and 11" rotors rear

    The wheels are Konig 20X10 50mm offset back, 18X8.5 front 35mm offset.* They are off-the-shelf so I didn't break the bank (completely).
