Ok, I've ordered my 15s SSW. I've checked the chart. Before I purchase tires, need the comfort of hearing from live sources as to whether 225/60/15s will fit with no rubbing on a 66 fastback, shelby drop, stock leafs and coils, drums brakes. Thanks.

Depends on the backspacing and width of the wheel. I have 15x7 TTD's on my '66 with 1" lowering on all 4 corners. The backspacing on the TTDs is 3.75". No way could I run 225's in front. I have them in back and get rubbing if I have too much weight in the trunk or any adults in the rear seat. I have 205/60's in front. I have not rolled the wheel wells.

Thanks. Neglected to mention, 15s are SSW, 4.25 backspacing.
Apreciate the info.

Sure would be nice to see a pic of that '66 in your signature Richard!

I would too. I'm photographically challenged. No digital.
