Hoosier 29x10.5-15w tire with wolfe minitubes?

I just ordered some wolfe minitubes and I was wondering if a hoosier 29x10.5-15w tire would fit?

I will be opening the front and rear wheel well openings a little bit for tire growth
Stock width rear for now
10inch wide wheels with 6.5 backspacing

Post some pics and specs of your setup's thanks

mini tub

my buddy put them in his coupe. But he never install that size of tire. But just looking they should fit. You will still have to use a BFH. Also, people have been cutting the rear end down 1 1/2 to 2" on each side looks real good. Good luck!

I read in a minitub article that a 29inch tire will rub on the wheel well opening (bottom front)., unless the tire is completely inside the fender. They tested the MT E/T streets. If the rear is anorrowed it is easy

A 29 10.5 W is going to be more of an issue front to back in the wheel opening, than a side to side (wideth)
I have a set of wolfe mini tubs and was looking to run a 315-60-15 (30" tall tire) radial. I could squeeze it in wideth wise with notching the frame rails, but I ALSO had to open up the wheels wells front to back to make it work.

as stated above, its not the width thats going to be a problem, its going to be the front to rear clearance of the wheel well unless you narrow the rear and put the tire completely inside the wheel well.

I didn't know that you had a bubby.

But here are some pics of the Wolfe Tubs.

Well im definitely opening the front and rear of the wheel well opening so they don't rub as I stated in my original post.My real question is i hope it doesn't rub on the outer quarter panel lip I do already have mine rolled tho keep the pics and setups coming.
