Anyone done a 66 to 68-72 rearend swap?

I am putting a 12 bolt out of a 71 Buick GS under my 66 chevelle. Is anyone here running a similar combo? If so what size of tires can you run?

Had a '65 GTO for awhile with a '69 Chevelle rearend. It only moves the wheel out 3/4" at each end. If you get a wheel with the right back spacing you can run whatever you had before. When I got mine the guy had 9" wide, 28" tall slicks under it. IIRC the '66 Chevelle could take a slightly larger tire.
