    I like how the 255/60r15 look lowered 2in in the rear. I been thinking of mini tubbing & relocating leaf springs in. I been Woundering if I could lower it 2in with a 28" tire that wide on a normal mini tube with out rubbing?

    My car has M&H 325DRx15's (which are 28" x 13") on a minitub with relocated factory leafs, fit is A-OK.

    Thanks RASelkirk. I have read your leaf spring relocation & mini tub post many times."Great Post". Im just concern if I lower the rear 2 inches with 28 inch tires it will rub the top of the wheel tub. It seems like I read some where a 275/60r15 would rub if lowered but can't seem to find it again. I havnt started the spring relocation & mini tub because if it will rub ill just stick with 255/60r15 & lower it 2" like maverickoutlaw did his. The Pic is of his maverick. Love how the tires go up in the fender well.
