I've been looking around at rims for awhile, and finally found one that caught my attention, but the problem is, that I don't know what the wheel spacing is on the '69

They show the Spacing in mm, i.e.. 5x100, 5x112, 5x120, 5x130...... and what about rim sizes? Are 19's a little too big? would 18x8.5 be ok?

Let me know

I can only assume that they mean bolt circle. 120mm = 4.75" so you want the 5x120. As for wheel sizing, is that for the front, rear or both?

This is a nice site for metric offsets and such...has a nice table in it.

Cool

A stock, '67, 14" x 6" steel rim is 3.75" deep measured from the back side to the wheel mount surface. And I know you mentioned a '69 so bear with me..

IF you use this measurement but from the front you will not have outter wheel lip rubbing! You just need to get any wanted wider rim from the back AND NOT THE FRONT!!!
