Does anyone know if a 325/50/15 will fit in a minitubbed early A body? (66 Dart)  I'm in the process of narrowing a rear for it and want to get a set of rims and tires first.  I think the section width of that tire is about 13", which might be pushing it.  Anyone got pics?

THANKS

Yeah, the tubbing is done for now. If I buy these tires and rims, I may have to do some more pounding, which I don't mind at all.

If you are going to use the M/T's, the set I have an advertised 13.5" section on a 10" wheel but they are actually approx 13.3"

I have just finished minitubbing and moving the springs of my 66 valiant. I have 325/50/r15 Mickey Thompson Drag radials on 15 x10 centerline autodrags with 4 7/8 back space. I Shortened My 8 3/4 and will post pics when my axles show up and I get it assembled. Test fits show these tires are going to be snug maybe 1" inside and out.

YEah Dan, good observation. I actually just got the rims and tires yesterday and have some pictures of the test fit. Now it's time to measure for a rearend. Go to this link for pictures. The folders are in chronilogical (sp?) order. Let me know if you can't see them in the link.
