Lowered 69 Wheel Question

I have a 69 with the Hotchkis 3" lowering springs in the rear and CPP's 2" lowering spindles with adjustable coil overs in the front. I also have the big disc brake kit at all corners. With no tub modifications or suspension alterations, does anyone know from experience if 18x8' (front) w/ 225/40/18 and 18x9.5 (rear) w/ 255/35/18 will fit? I will probably have to roll the 1/4 lip at rear...

Re: Lowered 69 Wheel Question

Hard to say for sure without seeing how low the car sits, but I have used 275's on the rear & 245's in the front without a problem. Getting the right backspacing on the wheels is key.

Re: Lowered 69 Wheel Question

Good point. I forgot to mention, the front wheels (18x8) have a 4.5" bs and the rear (18x9.5) have a 5" bs. ZO6, does your car have a similar lowering kit or is yours stock height?
