Best size tire for 17 inch wheel

I am installing 17 x 9 (6 in B.S.) summit legend 5 chrome wheels on my 67. What is the best tire size for that tire. I want about 24" -25.5" tall.

Re: Best size tire for 17 inch wheel

I doubt you will get 6" back spacing to fit without using a thick wheel adapter. Tires in the height you want are 205/45/17 (24.2") - 225/45/17 (25") and are not very wide... Are you looking to put the same size all the way around?

You should look through the '67 wheel thread that is stuck at the top of this forum and see what others are running that work!

Re: Best size tire for 17 inch wheel

Mine are about 25.5" in height (rears). Fronts are 17x7, 4" BS on 235/45's. Rears are 17x8, 4.5" BS on 255/45's. No rubbing at all.

I went through Newstalgia Wheel years ago. Give them a call and they can give you some recommendations. I ended up purchasing my Torque Thrusts from them. They put wheels on first gens every day.
