The stock wheels are 15x7". Those truck rally's have two versions. A 15x6.5", or 15x8". 275/60/15's fit on 7" wide wheels just fine. 295's up front are a bit much for the cars.

You can get some decent 275's for $115 each.

www.tirerack.com Firehawk Indy 500. I don't know why I can't get a link to work right.

275s up front are a bit much going around corners. trust me I know. But they only rub if I really crank the wheel, which I didn't do that much so it doesn't bother me much.

I think my dad got the 15x8s. They were on our 1950 caddy before with a set of 265 and 275 50s on them, All I did was take the 265s off and turn the 275s around so they were black walls instead of having the white logos facing out. Sadly BF Goodrich has since cancelled the 50 series 15 tires so I will have to make a hard choice when I need new front tires since nobody makes 275 50s anymore. All I can find are 295 50s. Will those work, or will they rub?

Stock 225's on the factory 15x7's rub the front sway bar. What do you think?

lol really? I didn't notice that, then again I switched the tires the day I bought it.

So it won't really make much of a difference since 295s are not much wider? And would it be safe to do?

I'm not sure that one applies here. The orginal question was talking about Impala SS Rims. So the direction has been maintained. However, there was still a thread jack.

Buy the dual aerosol paint... krylon perferably flat sheen... tanpe areas you dont want over spray then take to an air brush person to put whatever you want: chevy bowtie, 9c1, caprice or some wicked design the get a clear areosol to protect it all preferable satin where the shine really doesnt mask the artwork :) good luck

^Idk if that link will work or not but what do you think about these tires? Anyone ever had them before? I would like a tire with a good 3"+ sidewall. Good grip that will match 3.73 gears well. Possibly slicks but I don't want to get too crazy on prices since this is also going to be a daily driver.
I have them. I love them. They grip good and they don't wear down to fast (if your not doing burnouts everywhere) I would recommend them. But that's jutting opinion.
