Does anyone know if a 285/35/18 with a 9.5" wide wheel will fit under my 62 Galaxie 500 XL? The back space of the wheel is 5.1"

Might be a little deep, but maybe someone will chime in with more exp on the '62 and wheel/tire combos...

Thank you Mroldfart2u
Mine is quite a unique case but these are 275/35-18s on 18x10 wheels on a '64 wagon...albeit with a MN12 Thunderbird IRS:






I had the wheels made with the rearspacing necessary to accommodate this combination, the track width on the IRS is ~2.5in wider than the stock 9in axle, so I can't speak to your particular wheel/axle setup.
