345-35-15 P-Zero's???

My new set of 345-35-15's just arrived to the house today... Holy Sh_ _ - - they're huge!!

Currently, I have 285-40-15's mounted on 11" wheels. Nobody makes/carries them anymore...

When I used this tire calculator: http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/brochure/info/tmpInfoTireMath.jsp

I came up with +1/2" for Diameter and +2.25" for Width. The diff in diameter doesn't seem to be anything to worry about. But, the extra 2.36" width is beginning to scare me...

Anyone know if this tire will fit in a widebody, '79? I have 3pc BBS wheels that may have a spacer on them [I'll find out this weekend].

Thanks, Shannon
