I am running nostalgia look "cheater slicks" from Stockton Wheel.
They are P225/70R15  27 1/2 in. dia. with about a 10 in. "footprint".  I
have about 1&1/2 in. clearance from the fender sheet metal at the front
of the tire well opening.  I had to actually jack the truck up to get
the wheels bolted on the hubs.  These are the biggest I could find that
fit.  You can see them at this site:

P20575R15 on the front. You can see them at the sites below.

I've got a question for all on you. I finally have my truck almost finished
except for new tires. What I have is a 50 3100 with stock ride height. I have
the rims off of a late 80s Camaro and right now they have 235/60r15's. I like
the way these tires look in the front but I want to go with something bigger
in the rear to fill in the opening a little better. The bigger the better.
What have some of you used on your trucks and what kind of clearance or any
other problems did they cause? Any help is appreciated.
