I really like the stance of your car
I noticed that you are running 17x9 on the front of your cougar with a 5 inch offset.
That would give you 4 inches to the outside.
the 17x8 with a 4.25 offset would have 3.75 inches to the outside.
I am wondering if I can make this work with the proper size tires. maybe 235/45 17. these are only 25.5 inches tall.
My car has the TCI coil over conversion on the front and I will be running a new 5.0 coyote.
I plan to use 1inch lowering mideye leafs of the rear with track master bars.
Im also looking at running 17x8 wheels on our 1967. It seems that 4.5-4.75 BS is the most common backspacing.
Our car has the standard suspension, do you think we will run into problems with running 225/45(50) tires in front and maybe 235/45(50) in the rear?
What are my options if 17x8 doesn't fit? I looking for the open-track, road-racy look with a bit more rim and slightly less tire. How similar are the mustang to the cougars wheel wells? Seems like many can fit 17x8 inch rims on 67-69 mustangs without much of a problem.
