    What is the biggest tire size you can put on a 72-79 ranchero? I have a 75 so I’m curious.

    The 77-79's will allow a bit wider tire than the 72-76 model years. At one point I had a set of 325/50/15 Q/T Hoosiers on 15 x 10 Weld Drag lites that fit and had just enough clearance under my 79's rear fenders

    Did you check the backspacing of your wheels? I run 275/60/15s in back. That’s the biggest I get at this point.
    I’m going to get some wheels with 5.0 or 5.5 backspace and I’m planning on 295s or 305s...
