Looking to put a 17" by 4.5" wheel on my 79 Notchback. The tire I am looking at is 26" tall (6" wide).

I hear that the 79 cars have a smaller front fender opening, and wondering if a 26" tire is too tall to fit.

Anybody have experience with this combo?

Has anybody used the following tires? How did they perform from you with street driving?

M&H radial 185/55-17

Hoosier radial 26/7.5-17

MT Sportsman 26/6-17

Thanks in advance.

I ran the M&H radial 185/55-17 tires on a 17x4.5 Race Stars on a 2005 Mustang GT I had a few years ago. They drove well and it stopped fine (assuming you drive accordingly).
