I just bought a '67 dart.  The car is currently bone stock, complete with a slant six, 904, and either 7 1/4 or 8 1/4 rear.

Here are my plans.

6.1 hemi with 5 speed auto with 475 to 500 hp at the flywheel
either 8 3/4 or dana 60 rear end, with SS springs and an adjustable pinion snubber.
subframe connectors with hemi boxes
Front 11.75 inch discs front

I am debating whether to mini tub the rear by widening the wheel wells and moving the springs inboard, or just leaving them in the stock location.  So I need to know how much tire I can squeeze into the stock wheel well and if that will be enough tire to hook up reasonably well.  My goal is a car that will run low 12 second quartermile times, yet remain reasonably streetable. 

Regards

Joe

Take your time measuring and find some wheels with the backspacing you need. Sublime69 fit 275's in a stock wheel well. I'm planning on using that size also
