After notching the frame rails a bit and a few other minor modifications I was able to put on my 30x12.5 M/T ET Street tires.

I'm a happy camper :)

Looks good Anders. Do those tires measure 12.50 or 10.50? I know MT has a funky size chart. I have a 295/65-15 on my 65 with a 2" minitub. Also moved the rear back 1" so I wouldn't have to cut the front of my fender. Can't wait to get mine out. Dave

4door64 and 65 Post:Wheels are 30x12.5x15. They have 10.2 tread width and 13.3 total width (measured on 1 10" rim). I have them on a 15x8 rim. Was thinking on move the read back instead of cutting, but my "race mentor" didn't alove me to do it.

Cool II: yes, and a bit too much :-( Didn't have the tires wthen I did the operation so I cut a bit more than needed. But it is actually minimal cut in the fender itself, while I took a bit more of the rocker panel.

I gotta say , i think the tires are WAY to big ! and i would have never cut the body for additional tire . Well ,unless the body is a rotted out racecar.
doesnt look like much room for sway ,or growth !

Estetic - yes, I guess your are right (but it doesn't look too bad when you see the whole car.
Race purpose - still too small :)
