Re: 68 stock wheel houses with 17 inch rims , what fits
Those sizes you listed above will work well. Either a 9 w/5.25bs or 9.5 w/5.5bs will allow you to run a 275/40/17 (or 18) in the back. I have ran 235/45 and 245/45 sizes in the front without any problems. I am currently running Budnik Famosas in the 17x8 and 17x9.5 and they are coming off in the next week or two (going larger/wider). Finding those sizes in the standard one piece wheels are hit and miss. If you are interested in my Budniks let me know.
