I am getting ready to order Budnik Formosa's for my 69 and I needed some help, or re-assurance, on the proper wheel size and backspacing. Please chime in with any help, all is appreciated. I have reviewed all of the history on this issue probably 5 times or more in the last month and I still would like some advise.
I have a stock 69 SS that has not been lowered, with disc's up front, drum's in the rear. I really would like to go with 18's, 8's up front and 9.5's in the rear. From everything I read, this should be ok. Some people say 5" bs up front, some say 4.75". Everyone seems to agree that 5.5" bs in rear is right on. I don't want to have to worry about rubbing with passengers, so what do you guys think?
Dennis, you seem to be on top of this subject, please send me some of your advise.
