Is there a way I can find out the width of my rim with the tires still on? I have 15" rally's but am not sure of the width.
The tires are 215/65/R15's if that helps Maybe by the codes on them? If that will work where are they located.....Thanks guys.

Sure, just lay a couple of short boards across the center hole front and back and take a tape and measure between them and subtract an inch!! Should be right in there...

My stock 6" steel rims have right at a 1/2" roll on each side, that's how I came up with the inch... They measured 7", out to out!

Pop off the trim ring and you should see the code. I'm sure by your tire size and your photo that you have 7's, the only issue being the backspace (which is probably 4")

p.s. Are you planning on any local shows this year?

You could also go to a local tire store, they have a tool< plastic> that will measure wheels with tires mounted...free?

I'm planning on the Darien Lake show on fathers day if the weathers decent. I can't do Rookies on Tuesdays, I'll try for a Thursday one of these nights.I went to Shred & Ragans cruise nite Weds. at Lancaster dragway (it was okay). Looking forward to meeting you, I'm really eager to see your tranny swap.
