Hello all and new to this forum...

My son and I put the EMPI drop spindle/disk brake package on his 69 Beetle over last weekend. After finishing up, I noticed that the tires are now rubbing the front fender. We immediately went online and looked up issues, and found that this kit widens the track along with lowering. That was not known by us before replacement.

We are in need of tires anyways, so now is the time to buy the best fit size. The car already has a nice set of 8 spoke EMPI wheels, so we do not want to look at offset wheels. What tire size would you all reccommend for our application?

I know that another option is to replace the beam, but that was suggested not a good route as it is expensive by a local bug shop in Jacksonville, FL.

Thanks in advance for any and all advice given,
