I have a 71 chevelle (10 bolt rear end) with stock studs an the wheels i have on the rear are 15x7 with 295's -50-15 an they rub in the rear (Frame) so what spacer would i use to make the offset measure 15x8 ? Also rear is drum if that makes a difference!! Tia

I wouldn't go any more than a 1/4" or 3/8" spacer with stock lugs.
You also need to see how much room you have between the tire and the fender lip. Measure that space and divide in half. That is how much spacer you need to center the tire in the wheel well.

Buy some 15x8s or 15x10s.

The tire manufactuor recommends that you use a rim that is 8 to 11 inches wide.
I thought 245 60 15 looked bad on a 7 inch rim. i can't imageing how much that tire would be buldging.

I think they may be 15x8's but i can't even take the wheels off cause of the cap an i dont want to damage them an i think the offset just may be off!
