I have looked at previous posts and seend that members have been able to order the Cragar SS rim with custom backspacing. My question is will this setup fit ok: 275/40/R17 in the back with 5.5 backspacing and 243/40/R17 with 4.5 of backspacing. If this will not work or is not a good setup for any reason please let me know. Also where can i get the best deal for these wheels....THANKS A LOT in advance

With a 245 tire in front, you're probably gonna rub a little. I would go with 5" bs on an 8" rim. In the back, you won't find a lot of people running 9" rims...most are 9.5" with 5.5" bs.

1967 RS Coupe (clone): 406 SBC, Thorley headers, Muncie, Hotchkis suspension, Centerline Matrix 17" wheels with Nitto 555's, Baer brakes, 12 bolt 3.73 posi, RS conversion, Vintage Air, PPG Hot Red. (SOLD)

1968 RS Coupe: Project...Mini-tubbed, Cammed LS 6.0, T56, 12 bolt 3.73 posi, Ridetech 4 link...slowly adding more...
