hey guys, i got a c3 vette I been restoring. I got a set of 17x8 tq thrust wheels for it with a 4.5 offset. Im looking at going with a 275-50-17 rear tire. I currently have a 275-50-15 on the rear and it clears fine. but my stock wheels have a 4" offset. I measure 1-1/4 clearance from the tire to the frame rail, but the emergency brake cable is on the outside closer to the tire.

I really don't wanna buy a new set of tires if there not going to fit. So has anyone on here tries putting this tire size on there old vette?
