Looking to see if anyone has tried a taller tire & wheel combination for over the road travel, what is the tallest tire/rim that will fit into a Chevelle rear wheel housing, want to cut down the RPM's for distance travel..currently a El Camino with 15x7 wheels and 235x70Rx15 radials, 28" tall. Pull the current wheel/tires off, put in bed/trunk and put on a taller tire for long distance, change back when trip done for local use, for occassional use only, tire width not too important, it's currently a BBC and TH400 with a 3.42 gear, don't want to change to an O.D. set up, If you've done this or seen it done successfully would like to hear about it. NOT GOING TO CHANGE THE TRANNY.
