I have been meaning to ask this question as I plan on upgrading my green '68 Sport Fury to front disc brakes which, on full-size MOPARS requires the use of 15" wheels and I also already have 15" Magnum 500's with new 225/70 BFG Radial T/A tires that I really want to put on this car.

The plans for my "new build" yellow '68 Sport Fury include 15" plan steel wheels.

A car that runs mid pack and you plan on running once and a while, would be OK, Your purpose built SuperCar (Yellow 68 Fury) would have to run steal wheels with dog dish and either F-70 or G-70-15 Tires.

14.00 TIRES AND WHEELS AND BRAKES
14.01 Wheels must be correct, including correct diameter, width and material.
Note: Width may be upgraded to a maximum of 6”, if the correct wheel is narrower than that. Reproduction wheels OK.
14.02 All 4 wheels and tires must be same size.
Exception: Mopar TA Challenger came from factory with G-60’s on rear and E-60’s on front.
14.03 Original equipment reproduction bias-ply tires only. No soft compound tires of any kind are allowed. Retread tires are not allowed. Any car is allowed to upgrade to a maximum size tire of G-70 of the correct wheel diameter. All cars that were originally available with a 60 series tire can upgrade to a maximum size of G-60 tire of the correct wheel diameter.
Exception: First time Supercar participants are allowed to run normal ’non-sticky’ street radials for their first Supercar race.
14.04 Aftermarket or OEM brake upgrades are allowed for safety concerns. Every effort should be made to achieve a stock appearance.
14.05 Line locks are allowed if hidden.
14.06 Tire Tech; All the repop tire treads are similar in design, 4-6 deep circular tread grooves with smaller grooves and sipes within those rows. There must be evidence of the original main tread grooves over the whole tire to be legal. Any bald sections or patches where the original main groove disappears and the tire must be replaced.Most important if your tires are questionable, make sure you bring an extra set to qualify and compete with. Tires will be inspected before during and after the event is completed and must have all of the main treads showing.
