Picked up some free drag radials!

Its unlikely they will fit under the rear of my 82gt being a 275/60/15 but i might just see how close it is and see if its worth the trouble 🤣

Nice! Maybe a bit of fender rolling/pulling will help do the trick. At least cars with solid rear axle don't have to worry too much about camber and whatnot.

You will have to tub the rear. I used to have a picture of 255/70/15s unmounted sitting in the fenders and even those needed a tubbed rear.

Yeah i set them unmounted in there and even tubbed the car would sit way goofy in the rear. Ill keep them as a man cave decoration im happy with my 225/50/14s toyo r888s
