Rear Tire Clearance
« on: March 05, 2007, 06:40:45 PM »
If I have Good Year P295/50R15 rear tires on a stock suspention would I need air shocks or could I use Eldlebrock EDL-34996
monotube gas shocks. Will the tires rub on the fender? I really hate air shocks.

I put 295/60's on a car and I didn't have air shocks.  The rears should be fine
