I have a 72 challenger and fit mt et streets 28*12.5/15 pretty good....but for the guy who had the new quarter panel installed, I had a new quarter panel installed as well on the drivers side an the wheelwell lip is definately wider than stock and needs to be cut down!

 :iagree: The lip is wider on the repro quarter and is usually cut down to the correct width when installed.

 :working: I wasn't aware of that.  I have to reflect on that issue a bit.  I may pay the body shop to shave that a little so I can fit a wider tire in the well.  Of course my drivers side quarter panel had to be replaced last year and he mentioned he had to do a little shifting to make my tire fit properly in the well.  Perhaps he corrected the problem for me and I'll be able to fit larger tires in the wells.  I'll find out next summer since the rear tires have less tread than the front.  I've been a little heavy footed over the past year  :burnout:

On the T/A I use 235X60X15s on the front and 275X60X15s on the rear for cruising all on 7in rims. For the shows I have another set of wheels with E60X15s on front and G60X15s on the rear on 7in rims.

You're runnin' 15x7s all round rareT/A? with 275s? Cool...... thats what I'll be doing soon. just got a set of 275/60s with 15x7" wheel vintiques chrysler rallyes for the back this weekend. You don't have any rubbing problems er anything? cuz I'm a lil concerned with mine, and its got springs about..... oh....... ill say 2 er 3" taller than stock.

 Poor car looks ridiculous (kinda like that cuda low rider that super blue thinks is the shizzle above { :lol2: kidding....}) with the keystones and 215/60/14 tires I bought it with. I hung a set of 275s off a truck of my dad's on there once and it looked like it would run a 10.46 at 120, so I said screw the 255s I was thinkin on, I'm goin all the way! the 2 yr. wait was worth it even if I needa make some adjustments for a better fit, they look soooooooo sweet  :droolingbounce:

I might have some pics later....... sux being separated from my car! :(

heres my combo--front 15x7-4 1/4 bs  235 60 15
rear 15x8-4 1/2 bs  275 50 15 but i didnt like the rears-didnt look wide enough and it wallowed so i switched to 15x10-5 1/2 bs and the same tyres.the handling improvment was dramatic.it really tightened up the rear and gave the car a go kart feel compared to the 15x8........

gotta make it go fast enuff to need a spoiler .
those things are M :horse:U :horse:S :horse:T :horse:A :horse:N :horse:G reverse lamps for turn signals-local law.
my rear end is stock with plenty of clearance,no rubs or scrapes.first i had 60 profile tyres on the rear but they looked like balloons in the wheel arches so i switched to 50 profile and again the switch to 10 inch rims made a massive difference to the way the car handles.try a sudden swerve with 275s on 7-8 inch rims and you will know what i mean.nearly lost control of mine after swerving to miss a roo when i had the 8 inch rims

yes,in my state anyway,they dont allow the flashing brake lamps for turn signals.untill recently we had to have"CAUTION LEFT HAND DRIVE" sticker on the back window and inspections and higher licence costs ect,its all the same as regular cars now though.
one day i will get some trim rings and center caps and get the bumpers rechromed
