    I have 15x7 inch rally wheels on my 81 Camaro what is the largest size tire I can use without any rubbing issues? 235/60/15 or 245/60/15?

    I run a 265/50 on the front and 275/50 in back on early second gen Z28 wheels. The car is lowered and I have no rubbing in rear and very slight contact with front sway bar at full turn. I know everyone and their brother will say that is too much tire for 7" wheels but i have run these for 20+ years without issues. Granted the car is not an autocrosser but i have always liked the look.
