Anyway, right now I have 275/60R/15s on the rear of my car which I believe is around a 28" tire. It looks like I have room for a wider tire, which to keep the 28" height, seems to be 325/50R/15. Will this tire fit my 68 SS ? if so, what is the recommended back space and I would guess you need a 10" wide rim.

Any advice is welcome
Thanks Joe
i doubt there is room for them at 12.8'' sidewall width.

with a 12.2'' sidewall width ; with 27.9'' diameter
it was a tight fit, your rear axle must be centered exactly under the wheelwells
i have mine on 15x8/5.5''bs ; the drivers side rubbed slightly, so i added 5/16'' billet spacers; no rubbing now
