Just picked up a 1960 Galaxie. Looking to pick up some new wheels and tires over the winter. What it the largest wheel and tire combination that will fit inside the stock wheel wells. Thanks for any and all help.

Well, let's see a pic! Also take a measurement between the rear tires and the fenders. Info won't do you much good unless it is it the same on both sides.

I run 275/60R-15's on 15X8 wheels on the back of my '61. 235/60R-15's up front, also on 15X8's. Plenty of clearance.

I ran 18x8 with 245/45/18 in front and had plenty of turning radius in front and 20x8 1/2 on 255/40/20 and could have probably gone slightly wider. If you were to lower vehicle it gets a little tight in back.
