  1. Wheel/Tire Fit Question

    Wheels and Tires
    Hi All; My son and I recently purchased a 4 door 1966 Nova with a 230 straight six cylinder engine and two speed automatic transition.

    I saw an article on another site that was talking about tire sizes of the 60's. They were talking about a string of 3 numbers - but the catcher is that the article did not define what the numbers mean. Does anyone have any clue what the third set means? I cannot find anything that...

    Does anyone know if a 15x7 wheel 195/60/r15 tire will work on the front with a stock five lug conversion or have you experienced clearance issues. If it worked what kind of backspace were you using. Thanks for any input.
  7. Wheel Fitment Measurement - stock 63 Rear

    1st & 2nd Generation Chevy II/Nova's
    I used the Percy's Wheelrite fitment tool to see what I could squeeze into the stock rear wheel wells of my 63 hardtop. For those of you who have checked out the wheel fitment threads before, there are no real surprises here: 15 x 7 with 4.5" backspace, or 15 x 8" with 5" backspace seem...
