                Thanks Andy -- I know Garret (40Coupe) and he is running the 30x9 Hoosier Drag Radial slick on a 10" wheel. He tried a 275-60-15 DOT Hoosier radial which measured the same 12.25 cross section width just shorter which is sort of where I got the idea to go to a taller tire. I always assumed he had a mini-tub -- but I should ask.

                By the way, nice looking 67 :D I like that stance with the 295. Doesn't sit too high in back either. Trimming that lip might just work if its hitting at the top of the wheel opening. I trimmed a friend's 69 and you can't even tell that I took almost 1/2" off.

                PS. The original trim is actually stainless steel so if you cut or sand it won't rust.

                  Eric the tire rubbed in the front and back but never on top it caught the trim in the back and pulled it from the wheel well up and around.The picture is before I raised it 3" in the rear to make clearence.

                    FYI -- Garret "massaged the wheel opening with a plastic hammer and reinstalled the molding."

                    I might just look into this option :D

                      yeah I looked at them and until he pointed it out I couldn't tell. I just don't think where mine were rubbing with the 10" tire it would have changed much.
                      But try it and let me know how it works out for you and maybe I will give it a try! ;)
