I doubt the 28 in tall tire will fit under the front. I have 235x65x15 on 15x5 rims had to bend the bottom edge of the front fenders in and up a little to clear the tire when making a sharp turn

Not sure 30's will work in the back unless you have moved the rear housing back or wacked the front section of the quarters??......

26"'s in front......

26 inches would be the max in front, unless you want to cut the front lower edge of the fender lip for clearance on turns. To fit 30's on the back you may have to trim the leading edge of the wheel well, or space the rearend back a little.

Can anyone tell me what the largest 15" tire I can put on the front of my 69 dart. The wheels I want to use are only available in 15 x 6 with 3 1/2 backspacing. I will be converting to disc with stock size rotors and calipers. Thanks
I had my tire guy mount a 215/70-15 on the front and it hit the bottom front edge of the wheelwell. I had to go to a 205/65-15 0n the front and that cleared by about 1/2" ! (This was on a ARE Outlaw I 15x7" rim w/ 3-3/4" backspacing

whats the biggest size that can be run without mini tubing, 68 dart with springs relocated stock wheel wells, thinking 275-60-15 would do for a street car?

or even a 50 series if you've relocated the springs

I have the same question, Can I get away with running a 275/60/15 with a relocation kit. What back spacing should I get on the wheels? What is the largest wheel I can fit.

No mini tub!

I'm running a 28x12.5" in the rear with 15x10 wheels. 4.5" backspacing. This is on a 74 Dart Sport. No relocation and wheel well mods. I am running Super Stock springs though. Fronts are 24x4.5".

That is the perfect non-mini tubbed combo on a Dart. I actually ran 6" bs and sledge hammered the tubs in some to run a M/T 28 12.50 15 ET street on mine but the 5.5" bs would have been fine too.
