225 60/50 15 Tires

Hi!

I apologize for the unusual phrasing of the Title of this thread, but does anyone have pictures of a 65 or 66 with either 225 60 15 tires or 225 50 15 tires on Torque Thrust Ds? I'd prefer 225 60s, but am not sure they'd fit. Thanks for your help!

Regards,

I've got 225/60/15 on my '67 and had to roll my fenders with mideye 4 1/2 leafs, tire tread sits level with fender lip. The bulge of the tire just scraped before rolling and clears now. I think if I would have gone with 215 they may have just cleared w/o rolling? My TT D's are 3.75" bs.
Hope this helps some, I think you have less fender space in '66 than '67.

Thanks---your car looks fabulous; just the look I want. :shiny:
Thanks, it's right where I wanted it, fender lip level with tire tread so it doesn't look like there's any light space or room for more tire, going for the TransAm Series look. Front is 560 1" drop springs and 1" shelby/Arning drop. Car is level within 1/4" F/R. As stated, rear is 4 1/2 leaf mideyes. I like the ride, not jarring but pretty tight, planning a 1 1/8" front sway bar next and maybe fabbing a panhard rod for the rear.
