anyone back half a 66 car, or narrow rear frame,

want to run a 14 or 16 in wide rear tire,,,,all thoughts appreciated,

numerous tracks i run at vary greatly in traction, with a 10 in wide rear tire, and i have tried 5 different rears,,,
ready to go to a wider tire for better consistency,,,

Have you tried a 10.5W tire? I think they actually measure about 12". Run on a 10
" rim. Popular in NMCA racing. May have to notch the rear frame rail at the spring pocket to fit them

i had a 10.5 tire, but on an 8in rim,,,,, i have a 28-10-15 hoosier bias slick now, on a 8in rim,

i have some pics last couple weeks, 13-14-15 psi the tires are really wadded up, wrinkled bad, 16psi they really are hard to hook up,

maybe i need 10in wide wheel with these?, not running tubes
