Fitting that wide of a wheel will be all dependent on your rear ride height. The Fairmonts don't have the "full round" wheel openings that a Mustang do. Many people can fit a 9 or 10" wheel on a Mustang with no problem. Might be tough to do on a Fairmont. I couldn't fit anything past a 8" on my old Futura without minitubbing it. She sat real low in the rear also...

I had 15 x 10 rear wheels with 6.5" b.s.on my '79 Fairmont. With 28 x 12.50 MT ET Streets and it was a tight fit.

A 9 inch wheel with 6.0 bs works better tho. (or 8 inch with 5.5 BS)
