Max Tire Size for a '65 Stang

I found this website after doing some searching and I would like to know if these numbers are correct and if I would need to modify the wheel wells to fit the bigger tires. Any and all information, opinions, and advice(wheel related) is welcome.

Thanks,
Sore

I saw that same table on this website, but it was attached to a message as two separate attachments. The guy who posted it said there were 2 errors in the numbers, but unfortunately I can't remember which ones were off. Do some searching (I did) and you will find LOTS of info on tire size on here. Hopefully you can track down that same post that I saw.

Hope it helps!

You should check out dodgestang's website, he lists lots of combinations that people have actually tried, and what they look like.

http://www.dodgestang.com/Tire%20Fit...ide%2065-6.pdf

Also, this article has some good thoughts, and some nice pictures. The first 2 pages are all 67+ mustangs, but the last page also covers the 65-66 stang.

Finally, this site shows some pics of different combinations of ride heights and wheel/tire combinations.
