Rear tires- Hoosier quick time D.O.T P 295/50-15

I have 245/60R 15 on my lowered 72 , only thing is the passenger tire will
rub a little sometimes when I turn into a driveway , Rubs on the inside I think .
No problems driving on the road , Tire is 26.6in tall , 9.6in wide ,

Is the SS! available with a 5.5in back space , I can only find a 5in on Summit
I am looking at buying a set of these for my Chevelle ,But want 15 x 10 for the rear .

It would help if we knew what car you were talking about!
P means passenger and LT is light truck. Of your choices only the 245 will work. The ones after that are way too large for the front of most cars.
