I just got my tires mounted up and after much measuring they are on and fit wit no issues and I have only had to trim 1/4" off the lip of the fender well along the top side. They have about 3/4 inch from the springs and 1/2 from the fender lip once trimed, they would have fit with out trimming the lip but would have only had a 1/4" of clearance so I trimmed a little.

The BFG's look nice ;)
Are the springs moved in on your Dart?
What is the back space on your wheels?

Good lookin Dart.

Springs are in stock location.
Wheels are a 15x7 with a 4" backspacing.
The only mod is to trim the wheel lip but you could probably get away with out doing it but I wanted to have plenty of space.

Nice, I'm glad they fit so easily for you!

Here's a 275/40 R17 on my Barracuda for test fitting. I need a slightly taller tire - 50 series or maybe 55, and possibly a .5 - 1" wider rim in the rear so the tire doesn't have as much bulge.

Of course, I bulged out the quarters about 2" when I welded the new ones on. I wanted to make sure I had room to stuff a nice tire under there.
