    Hey on your original post you said your rear tire is a 305/35 and on your reply to your make and model you said your rear tire is 305/30.

    Can you double check that size please?

    Thanks

    Sorry, your right they're 11" wheels in the rear...brain fart on my part. The tires are 315/30/18 R888's. Probably 1/4" or a little less clearance inside and outside. The rear quarters are new but the lip is still there because the clearance gets tight above that anyway. I was nervous about deflecting the suspension laterally enough to cut the tire on the lip but there were no issues on the road course. I'm running rubber bushing in the upper ears on the dif and either poly or johnny joints everywhere else.

    No issues whatsoever...


    How do the drag radials do for street driving? Plan on a similar set up on my 68 chevelle?
    Thanks
