How wide of front tire?

With your MII front end, how wide of a front tire will fit under a first gen Nova without rubbing (assuming a 17" wheel, 7 or 8" wide, whatever BS needed)?

Evan runs a 265 on the front of his car but it does rub at full lock on the inner panel. We usually recommend a 255 as the widest on a 1st Gen.

There were a few width options available for the MII front ends. Take a look at this thread, it may help decipher back spacing and max width.
