275/60-15 on 15x7”

Does anyone have this tire size on a 7” side rim?
I’d like to see pictures of this setup. Will it look lame or will it look tall ballony and nascar-like ?

Its not optimum but you can get a way with it.  You are looking at almost a 9" tread so it will have a little extra bulge in the sidewall but not bad.  I run 8" wheels with my 275/60-15's.

Yeah I was thinking about the tires flexing etc when taking turns. It might feel a bit wobbly.
I gotta hit that nascar bulge. Extra extra fat.
:-)
275/60 don’t look that fat on an 8” rim I think :-)

I can take pictures of just the wheels later, they're stacked in my garage (for sale if you are interested).  This is the only pic I have with that setup, sorry it's not going to show the bulge of the tire but it's not like a balloon.  The trim ring hides it a little since it sticks out from the rim.  Back tires are 275/60 and front tires are 245/60. I couldn't tell you if it made the car wobbly because I ran those with stock suspension so the whole car handled like a cruise ship anyway.

Awesome, I’d be very thankful if you could show me a couple of pictures.

Mine has stock suspension too, so I probably won’t notice either then :-)

I’m in Denmark, Europe so I better find a set of rims locally :-)

This will vary by tire brand/model. 254mm = 10 inches, so theoretically 275 should be 10.83 inches. However, that's nominal. IRL it's all over the place. My Nitto 275's have 9.75" tread width.

Mine use to handle the same way until I put some nice sway bars on it.

Here is my stock suspension (original springs) with 275-60 R15 tires on 15x7 Cragars. To me it is balloony but I like that look Very Happy

275/60 on an 8.5" centerline.  I like the look of them on a 7" rim with the bulge.  Mine are too straight sided.  Wish the auto drags came in a 5.5" or 6" back space.

I totally dig the puffy look of that rear wheel!!!
I think it is settled: I need 7” wheels for my nascar tribute!

I know what look your going for, and you may be better off with 295/50's on 15x8's

Heres some crappy pics of some 275's

275/60 BFG's on a 15x8


And 275/60 Nitto drag radials on 15x10s

I already got the tires :-)
275/60 is about the only size of wide and tall tire, that is cheap because it can be had without raised white letters.
I got some letters from tredwear. Looks nice

I dug up a set of 15x7 rallies from the early 70’s.
They are really cheap so if the BS works I’ll start out with Steelers instead of Aero’s.
Progress is slow at the moment, but I’ll be sure to update my build thread
