Haven't posted my wheel tire combo in a while, and never in this thread so here goes...

Front wheels are 15 X 4 and have 1.75" backspacing. Have 205/75/15 (27" tall) tires mounted on them.

Rear wheels are 15 X 10 and have 7.5" backspacing. Rear tire is M/T ET Street 28 X 12.50-15.
Have a '68-'72 Chevelle 12-bolt rear, 12" 150 lb coil over springs, and full/max frame notch with 36" mini tubs.

On the way to the shop for cage, tubs, and chassis work.

Just came back from the shop I think my cage is hidden pretty well from the side view. Please excuse the driveway mattresses as I also was convinced by the wife to replace our mattresses the same day I brought my car home.

And some pics of the old grudge car (soon to be street beater) on Centerline Fuel wheels and 275s

How do those 22s fit on the Malibu? How wide are they? What size are the tires (front and back)? Do they rub?
