The right rear tire of my '72 Malibu is scraping the wheel well something fierce, and I'm not sure you to correct it. My mechanic wants to cut the lip a little to make room for the tire, but I think it might be better to keep the integrity of the body and shift down a tire size. At the moment I'm using 295 BF Goodrich T/A Radials on a 15-inch wheel with a 50 aspect ratio; I know BF Goodrich also makes a 275, and that 20 cm should give me all the clearance I need but still have a nice wide footprint. Any advice? I appreciate anything you can tell me, I'm brand new to this and learning as I go. Thanks!
