I have 15 by 7 magnum 500 wheels with B.F. Goodrich P235/60SR15 front & rear.
I just put 2003 Mach 1 17x8 245/45/17 on my 68. 1" adaptors on all 4 corners.
The car is lowered 1" The fronts rub slightly on the front lower fender only while doing a tight circle. No rubbing noticed at all while driving
Let me know what you think!
Hey thanks for posting that link I have been trying to find good pics a a 68 in silver AND I wanted to know how 18's looked so that took care of 2 things for me.
Pat, you realize that the rear tire size will be a bit smaller in diameter than the front, 25.7" vs. 25.0"? Is that what you're after, or do you want the same or taller on the rear?
What offset would I require to go wider? I have found styled steel wheels both in 14 & 15" that come either 7 or 8" wide which will work with wider tires (265-277), but I guess I'll need to know what offset to use. I hear what your saying, but man I really want to go wider if possible. I might need to consider a different wheel then.
