    Havent had an e body for quite a while but had a 73 cuda at 1 point and I know I ran 10" on it with bias ply's. They stuck out under the lip but not past it. Im sure air shocks were in play but i'd like to run more than a 275/15 back there with coil overs and definently dont want no quarter damage. Anybody else try this? Im gonna measure my backspace and fit the fattest tread i can fit on the challenger. Ive read a lot of posts and im not moving the springs cuz of #s car but any new posts of max wheels would be helpful.
    Thanks to all!

    Hey Merlin,
    Check out the post in the Tire & Rim forum by Big Al, dated 2/2/20. There’s a couple of photos of my Cuda and the description of the rims and tires, might give you some ideas.
    Happy Hot Rodding

    if you go superstock springs or air shocks (many don't recommend)...275 60's on 15x8 or 295 50's both work in stock location

    If you use a early B body diff with offset spring hangers you should be able to tuck at least a 305 in the stock wheelwell more if you use an 18 " rim so the sidewall bulge is much less

    I used the 15x8 cop wheels from summit racing with 275/60r15 on stock suspension and no mods
