Safe front spacing

Doing calculations for my new 18" wheels on my 69. What is a safe front spacing without rubbing the outer tub? Stock width axle.

5.5" on a 9.5", so I'd reckon 8" b.s. on a 12"?

Re: Safe front spacing

I am assuming you are mini-tubbed, if running a 12" wheel. I would tend to agree with Steiner. It does all depend on personal preference on where you want them to sit in the wheel well, as I think even a 7.75" backspace would be good.

What wheels are you looking to get? We carry a lot of wheel lines and would be glad ot help you out.
