   I have 205/60/15's on all four corners of my 66. Stock springs and
custom offset wheels. No problems with rubbing anything and the look
and handle great. For more details check out

Okay, a new wrinkle in the tire stuff.

I have heard from this list and elsewhere that 205/60-15 is either

(a) the largest 15-inch tire that you can fit on the front of a late
model, or

(b) the smallest 15-inch tire that does NOT fit on the front of a late

The issue in either case being a fender rub.

What are listmember experiences with this specific tire size on the
-- front only -- of a late model? With what width wheels? Backspacing?
Stock or cut springs?
