If you have the wheels, bolt them on and take a few measurements to see what kind of space you have for tires. The clearance varys from side to side and from car to car. What will fit someone elses car may not work on yours. The only real way to know is by installing them and checking. Will the dealer mount them up so you can check fitment? One of the Discount tire shops here has some gearheads employed that are very helpful in getting tires that fit.

This is about the equivalent size of a 26 x 10 slick, so they should fit. I run a taller 275/60/15 M/T ET Street radial and have plenty of room, but I did roll the fender lips for clearance.
I also run a 28 x 10.5 M/T ET Drag slick at the track and they fit (although close) as well.

You'll like these tires, I just had a 1.514 60 foot in my small block car with them last weekend at 17 psi. Aired em up to 22 and drove it home!

The car run a 396 with a 3500 stall converter in a turbo 400
we have a 12 bolts c clip elim with a 4.11 rear gear..

we need traction a stock radial tire just spin and burn
nice smoke show but bad 1/4 mille time...


we also will install a set of Kaltrack traction bar they look
like they will work with this set up...

last week a Mission race way this 72 Nova was running a set
of Kaltrac and his 60f was real good for a small Goodyear slick
he hook up and left hard....
i hope that the mikey will work the same...
