roadmaster tire question

not sure if this should go in the tire section or the roadmaster section..

iin spring im planning on getting new tires and i was looking at some 275 40 17s for my impala wheels, see a lot of forum members running them.

My question is will they fit in the fender skirts on the roadmaster sedan? and is the sidewall enough to support the weight of our cars with enough coverage to kind of cover the lip of the wheels? any input would be great thanks!

yes

is the sidewall enough to support the weight of our cars

yes, though not really with 6 people and a trunk full of ammo.

with enough coverage to kind of cover the lip of the wheels?

No. You will get zero protection for the wheels from 275/40's, but they do lower the car nicely and improve the handling and braking. Ride suffers noticably but not obnoxious. With the right suspension the car will handle great.
