Re: '69 Owners: Who's running 275/40-17 on stock suspension?
I'm running 275-40-17 Nitto 555's on the rear mounted on Vintage Wheel Works V45 17x9.
(1) The wheels have a 5.5" BS and rubbed on the inside initially. I use 3/8" spacers on either side that gives a net BS of 5.125.
(2) With the spacers I do not have any rubbing, not on highway or turning. I have not loaded the rear seat with people so I don't know if that might cause a problem when turning, but I don't think so as there seems to be sufficient clearance.
(4) Stock location for the shocks.
(5) Stock ride hight and suspension
