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. As far as we know, the axles are original and it has drum brakes and 13 inch wheels all around. Everything I have found indicates that 14 inch wheels were the largest you could get from the factory. Can anyone tell me if we can install 15 inch wheels, without modifications to the axles, body, suspension, etc.? And, if so, what size tire will work.

Thanks in advance for assistance.
