Re: how can i get my 18's to tuck better on my 67?
Here are some measurements I took for someone else a while ago.
I don't know the wheel backspacing, but here's what I was able to get.
Front - 18 inch wheels:
floor to the body in front of the tire...lowest part of the body where it rolls under....about 9 inches
8" wheel with about a 2" dish
No rubbing on bumps, but the tire will just barely rub the frame if you turn it too much. Doesn't impact driving the car at all.
Rear - 20 inch wheels:
floor to the body in front of the tire...lowest part of the body where it rolls under....about 7.5 inches
9.5" wheel with about a 3.5" dish.
I'm thinking about changing the rears to 18's at some point. I think I want a more balanced look. I'm going to wait to decide on what I'm going to do with the rear suspension. If I do a 4 link, then I'll probably change it because setting the ride height will be so easy.
