I have 17X8 inch wheels on my 69, they look great, i do experience some rubbing on the fronts when I go over rolling bumps, not when I hit potholes. Any ideas on what I can do to stop this occurance? I have replaced the springs and shocks already. It helped but did not fix the problem. I have 235 / 40 / 17s on the wheels. Help is greatly appreciated.

I took your advice and called the wheel shop. I asked them to order me new front wheels with a larger back spacing, mine are 4.5 in. They are more than happy to do so, but they said that getting a wheel with more backspacing will only push the tire out towards the fender more. Make sense to anybody? I really do want to get this rubbing taken care of. Thanks for all your help.
