Sorry, most of my pictures are held hostage by Photobucket so blame them if you can't see.

I am going to have to retract my previous statement of possibly fitting 335's in the rear. My setup is actually rubbing in the upper wheel wells upon further inspection. It must be rubbing due to the body roll while cornering. The rubbing is just slight on the tire but, is no way ideal.

315's are definitely attainable, no doubt. With leaf springs, one will have to relocate them inboard 1.5" using Dr. Diff's kit and roll the rear fenders. Once those two things are done its just a matter of finding the correct offset wheels.
I am having more issues fitting them in the rear than in the front haha!

Unfortunately Dr. Diff I believe quit making the 1.5" offset kits according to correspondence about a half a year ago.

I just called Cass and the reasons he stopped making them were because too many people complained that they interfere with a full length exhaust and that they will leave two small dimples on the `Cuda rear valance.

That's too bad, it was a nice product. If enough people ask him nicely though...

Here is the damage from the 315 rubbing in the rear, minimal but not at all ideal.


Some rear fender rolling progress

Eastwood says their roller does not work with thick double wall rear fender sheet metal of most muscle cars but that is all baloney, it works fine, just need a big F'ing hammer also.



Before shot from a while back

This mod is not too bad since I don't have nice paint. Believe me I wasn't gentle on these fenders at all as they are not that easy to fold up. A few whacks of a big hammer does the trick to bend the metal up, then I used the roller fender to get the shape I want. I took my time as didn't want the rear fender to concave in permanently as it would flex when rolling at a certain spot.

Not too bad as I have never rolled fenders before. I still have to do the driver side and I think it adds about an extra inch of clearance. I'll post up actual measurements of before and after at a later time.
My spine is still killing me due to being crouched down under the fender all day haha!

I finished the driver side and took before and after pics:
Before

After

Added about 5/8" additional clearance

My advice when rolling the fenders is to take your time and check your work. I got a bit too greedy and the fender concaved in a bit. I had to pop it out from the inside and everything looks great now.
