Re: Wheel and Tire Combo question
You could run a 16x8 wheel up front with a 235 tire with no problem. The rears could go up to a 16x9 or 9.5 with a 275 tire and have no rubbing issues. The trick to good wheel fitment is getting the correct backspacing. Talk to either Jon or Justin at Driverz Inc., they're a sponsor on this forum. Either on of these guys would be happy to hook you up with a set of wheels & tires for your 68 that will fit perfectly. I know....I have purchased 3 sets from them and couldn't be happier!!
