15" tire clearance question
« on: October 07, 2015, 10:35:41 AM »
So i just added a set of 15" centerlines with b.f. Goodrich t/a's. 235/60/15 on them. Im a little concern on how close they are to the rear 1/4 panel

225
You're fine.  Hell, one configuration of my car is running 235/60s in the back and 225/50s in the front.  If anything, you're cutting it close on the back side of the tire.  Probably not a lot of room between the sidewall and the leaf spring, right?
