    Default 79 trans am wheel & tire fitment help.

    My brother has a 79 trans am ws6. He is looking to go as wide as possible out back. I'm not to familiar with Pontiac cars. He wants to go with 15 x 10" wheels in the rear. Will they fit? Also if they do what's the widest tire that will fit with no rubbing issues?

    Thanks

    I think 9 is the widest without body mods.

    10 is pretty wide but with the right offset and a hammer they'll go

    I can fit a 10 wide rim with a 10 wide slick with 5 inch backspace (0 offset) on a 72 camaro. Should be the same.
