20x10 max tire size on a 69 chevelle

im considering putting 20x10s on the back of my 69 chevelle...I was wondering if a 305/35/20 would be a stretch on these wheels? thanks guys

If you get a 6" backspace on the wheels those tires should fit just fine!

ive got a set of 305's going on a 10. thats unless i get the 3 piece 11's or 12's. youll have a little bulge, but not anywhere near enough to worry about. before i knew any better, i was running 295's on an 8.

I dont think a C5 will not fit with that big of a tire. the most backspace they have is 5.5 and will work fine with a 275 maybe a 295. I have 20x10 C5's with 275 35 's on the back of my 70 they look great , but there is no way i could run a 305 without more back space on the wheels

yup, you are absolutely right. the more threads i read more apparent it became that the obvious consensus is that a 305 will need about 6/6.25 of backspacing.
