How much tire will a 76 take?

Post by jonny o on Mon Aug 18, 2008 4:10 pm

I have been having a ton of traction problems and need to try and fit as much rubber under this thing as possible. I talked to a fellow who gave me some numbers, but want to double-check before I start working on piecing together wheels and such.

'76 malibu classic. Original suspension mounting, cut front coils.
Can I fit:

15x10 with 5 in backspacing on the front with 265 50
15x13 with 6 in backspacing and 305 50 in the rear?
