255/60/15 street tires fit no problem. That is a 10.1 inch section width. Go to Mickey Thompson, Hoosier or M&H websites and look at slicks and their advertised section widths. Not all tires are the same size physically even thought the advertised numbers match. For instance. I have 28/9/15 M/T slicks for my Fairlane. They are 10.8 section width. I had bought some M&H 28/9/15 slicks and they were almost an inch wider. They did not fit. The M/T O.D. is actuallt 27.3 even though it's advertised at 28". A M&H is as advertised at 28". Look up the online catalog specs and study them. _________________ Doug Bender

I just put a set of hoosier 28" by 10" slicks on mine. With a minor massage of the fender lips the clear just fine and look sweet.
