If I get 10,000 miles out a set of tires, I didn't drive very hard and dry rot is probably setting in.
No, they will not fit with out some (extensive) modifications.
Food for thought, the OEM rims were 14x6 on your '68 coupe.
I have two sets of the adjust-a-jets from Holley laying around. Basically the same thing as the Percy's set.
My problem is they lengthen the carb...
Fits just fine under my GT 350 hood.
Wedge kits are a waste of money.
