Tire Fitment Pages

These pages exist to give Chevy II and Nova owners information on what size tires fit particular year Novas. If you have additional information about Nova tire fitment, or believe something to be in error, please contact us. Read through the tire fitment page for your year Nova before e-mailing me with questions, however, because that's what it's there for. Thanks to all who've given us information for this page; we couldn't have done it without you!

Important Note (disclaimer)!!
First, we want to say that you really need to check carefully before you buy wheels and tires. The information on this page is legitimate and was collected from a wide variety of sources, but all cars are different. Size "X" tires fit one car with a 4.5" backspacing, but on the same generation car, another guy's same size tires required a 5" backspacing, and yet another guy's car required a 4" backspacing. You really need to check your own car as carefully as possible. The picture below may help.
