    I'm building my 80 malibu to thrash around. Basically as my daughter is getting near driving age she wants to know what I do about cars. I've been a 2nd gen fbody guy most of my life but I got the malibu at a good price and I love that square body look.
    Anyway to the point. The tire I'm looking at is a 275/50/15. This will be for all 4 corners and an extra set of street legal slicks. Originally I wanted to notch the frame and brace the crap out of it but my time is limited and well I just don't feel like pulling the body lol. I scored a 6 point cage from the same guy I got the car from. So will I be fine with that tire size on a 15x8 or 15x9 nascar look alike rims? ( I love the 80s stock cars)
    Thanks in advance

    Yes, 15 x 8 Aeros or Bassets. 4 offs, with maybe with a spacer to dial it in. Get racing lugnuts as the taper is different. Allstar has the best selection in thread sizes.
