Wheels and Tires

I'm looking to get a set of Coker Chrome Rallye wheels for my 67, with stock susp. was thinking of 15x6 4"back space or 15x7 4.25" back space for front and 15x8 4.5 back space for rear with 215/225 60 front 275 60 rear tires or close to that, has anyone tried that combo, and will it work without tire rubs etc. Thanks for your help

Re: Wheels and Tires

You should be ok up front. I think 275 in the rear will rub the wheel openings unless you modify them or have it set up kinda high with a stiff suspension.

Re: Wheels and Tires

Measured on my own 67.
Distance between,
Inner wheel well - Fender lip = 11.6" (295mm)
Drum brake mounting surface - Inner wheel well = 6.5" (165mm)
Drum brake mounting surface - Fender lip = 5.1" (130mm)
Drum brake mounting surface - Lower shock bracket = 5.3" (135mm)
By that the maximum tire width would be 130+135=265mm since a 15" rim will hit the the lower shock bracket before the inner wheel well.

Should also have added that I am using 245/45-17 on 17x8 rims w 4.5 BS. Even though the profile is different I would say that with 4.5 BS a 245 or maybe a 255 tire is the max that will fit without rubbing with stock suspension.

Re: Wheels and Tires

I have 15" stock rallys with 215 x 65 up front and 255 x 60 and the fit is good. The rear looks a big to me but that is how the car came. Next set of tires will be 225 x 60 and 245 x 60 as is on my other 69 and looks good and not a large noticeable difference.

I would agree with this.

I would also agree with this.
Before I converted to 17 inch wheels I was using 15 inch rally wheels, 225/60-15 in front and 245/60-15 in rear.
