Re: Wheels for 68
Do yo have stock front end and brakes? When I put new wheels on my 68 it was recommended I use 17X7 with 4.25" BS in the front. I have 225/45 in the front and it is probably an inch lowered and I still get a little tire rub on the right side on the outside of the tire. I have a big brake kit from CPP which moves the wheel out 9/16" and I think that is causing the rub. Maybe the extra BS will work with 17X8 but make sure to consider other things like brakes, etc. Hope this helps a little.
68 RS Coupe 355/350 TH, Detroit Speed, Hotchkis, Vintage Air, 8.5" 3.42 posi 10-bolt, MagnaFlow 2 1/2" exhaust, etc.
