Can I put 17 inch tires on a 1962 Bel Air or stay with the 16 inch I currently have on it? They are 255's on it now

Sure you can. I'm going with 18xs in the front and 20's out back with no modifications on mine. Just watch your width.

wheel size doesn't matter, it is the tire diameter and width you have to watch

I meant to sat 17 inch wheels. What width are you running? Mine right now are kinda wide but they still clear. They are 255's. I have 16 inch wheels on it now

You can run as wide a tire that will fit in your wheel well and still clear. A good tire shop should have a way to figure out backspacing to get the widest tire and wheel combo you can fit and still get the proper clearance.
