Hey folks, new to the forum and hoping you guys may be willing to help out the Oldsmobile guy. I have a 69 Olds 442 and i would like to put some bigger rubber in the back, no pun intended. Not sure how much variation there may be between a chevelle and a cutlass, but I was wondering from those of you with experience how big of a tire were you able to fit on stock width rear axle with stock height suspension or slightly raised adjustables? I have heard some guys have run a 325 rear with little to no modification as long as you have a wheel with the proper backspacing. I was considering a 15 or 17 in the rear. Width at 10" i know a lot of people say with proper backspacing 275's fit easily. Anyone here know more about this in regards to wheels size and backspace? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks folks!

Or you could get out your Measuring Tape and Measure how much Space you have in your Car's Rear Wheel Wells
to ensure what will fit with NO Rubbing on the INside or OUTside
