I'm getting ready to buy wheels and tires for my 69 Cougar. I want to go to 15" rims but was told the backspacing on 15X7" are 4.25 and the only wheels I can find are 4.50 steel wheels.
Will those work. What size works best. anyone have 4.50 backspacing?
Logan, I run into a deal today, Cragar SS's, 15x8 with 4" bs. The rears are 265/50's and the fronts are 235/60's. I'm worried about the fronts. What do you think? It's a really good deal if they will work.mm
Ok cool. I wasn't sure before but I'll go get a bid in on them. How often do you find something like this on e-bay thats close enough to pick up instead of having to ship them? Now as long as someone dosn't want to pay more than I. mm
The Crager street stars I had on the front of Badcatt had 235/60 15 on them with no rubbing, I don't know the back spacing. I can check tomarrow. The XR7 has magnum 500s with Eaglesin 235/60 15 and do rub when backing and turning hard. I aalso do not know the back spacing on them.
I'm holding back and listening right now. I really dont want to get into fender rubbing. I thought 7" rims would be best for the front myself but if these would work I'm sure the wider rims would look great. mm
