Re: 17 x 8 all the way around? What would you do?
I've been through the same quest hence I wanted to keep that old school muscle car appearance with a reasonable amount of rubber but with a set of new wheels so I went for custom made rims that I bought from Newstalgia Wheels. My choice were American Racing 200S that originally were introduced in 1969:
I had to custom made the offset to get the wheels completely to fit in the front and rear due to the car is lowered like 2" all around. Don't forget that all the cars are individuals regarding how the rear end sits compared to the body and therefore needs to be measured to get the right BS! My wheel setup is like this and yes, I chose 9,5" for the rear:
Front 17x8", BS 4,75" with Kuhmo Ecsta 225/50-17
Rear 17x9,5", BS 5,75" with Kuhmo Ecsta 255/50-17
