    anyone fit a 15x10 with 275 radial in the stock wheel wells? I thought i found a thread on some slick fitment, but my recent searches turn up nothing.

    Easily that will fit you can go to a 295 and still have room I just had 295/50/15(on 15x10s) my car with room to spare.

    We talked about this here before and with the right backspacing or spacer you could fit a 315 tire or possibly wider.

    There weren't  many cars made with wheel wells a big as the 77-96  B bodies. Hence the Donk (Giant 20" to 30" ie.  Wheels) craze

    of few years ago.

    Sorry I forgot to turn my email notifications on, the deal is no longer running but watch various ebay stores for special deals. CWO (custom wheel outlet) and discount tire's seem to offer pretty stellar deals on Ebay.
