    Not very big. Had a couple of 'A' body cars over the years and compared to the same year B's, the A's are tiny. An 8" wheel with the right size tire should go in but if you want to go bigger, a mini tub is in order. Maybe someone with more knowledge will chime in.

        Been trying to remember the tire size I had on the back of a 67 Dart back in the mid 70's....H-70-15 iirc. That would be the same as a 225-70. Not that big. They fit snug on 6" wheel but were not that close to any sheet metal unless I articulated the chassis going into a entrance that had a good incline and then they would touch the inside top of the wheel house.
