Looking for some input on MT 255x60x15 DR's on stock tub Gen II? I've seached 16 pages on this but it seems like I have heard they fit but not any actual conformation. Got picts or first hand knowledge of these Drag Radials fitting? :D

I run mt's dr on my 66. They are not labeled 255, but they are the 26.0x8.00x15's. They are approx 10" wide on a 15x 8 prostar rim. I do not have leaf springs, im running a 4 link w/coilovers.. With a 5 inch backspace i probably could run another inch or so larger.

I would like to see pictures as well.I have 245x60x15's on the back of my car and with SS wheel well mouldings I think it is as big as I could go.I have moved the rear end backk 1/2 inch for more clearance at the front as well.If you cut the wheel lip down to about 1/4 inch with the correct size/offset wheel they might not rub.

Here are some pics with the 235/60-15 MT ET Streets on 7" rims w/ 4.25" BS. The tires barely clear the springs, but plenty of room between tire and fender. With my other rims (7", 3.5" BS) I will go with 255/60-15 MTs.
