On my '73 Scamp, I fit a Hoosier 29 X 12 with a 15 X 10 rim with no problem. I did roll the top of wheel opening lip upward. I believe that Hoosier was a 13.7 section width, but you might get away with more but will be tight. That diameter tire gave me about 1/2 inch from the lower front wheel opening, and had to trim the front of the inner wheel due to clearance concerns. Also depends on how low or high you want the car to ride...the lower you go, the more ostructions there are to deal with.

I think the max amount of space you can get from the outer frame rail (with no undercoating ) to the outer quarter with the lip rolled up is pretty darn close to 15" on the Scamps, Darts, and Valiants I have measured.

On a Dart you really need to stretch the opening a little to get a tall tire on there.

Thanks Guys
I already have the rear moved back 1in but I have come to a problem area. I was looking in the trunk and found if I put the tubs to the frame rail I will have to cut about 3/4-1/2in off my 6x6in plate for the roll bar.To much malted hopps that night I guess. So if I leave the plates alone I could only move the tubs to the frame spot-weld flange.

Are you woried about the plate being smaller than 6x6 and not being legal? You can add a additonal piece to the vertical outside of the frame rail to increase the size of the plate. The rule doesn't state that the 6x6 has to be flat. We did this on "Dizusters" car. I'm sure there are pictures in the archives of his mini tub and cage.

Right now I have a 28x11 in the stk tub but rear end moved back 1in. I still have some room but was thinking 13 or 13.5 drag radial.

Is it possible to fit a 31" tyre with an aftermarket tub, sorry to hijack but i thought a bit extra info wouldn't hurt.

71 Scamp with Mopar mini tub setup. Tubs to the frame wells outer upper lip rolled a bit.
I was running 15x12 with 3 1/2 B/S On Hoosier (slicks) 29"x12"x 15 It's the biggest you can run without moving in the frame wells and cutting the quarter panel or moving the rear.

Going to fast now putting in Dana 4-link setup.
