Wheel and Tire Size

I have just put Classic Performance Parts front disc brake kit with 2" drop spindles on a 67 Camaro. When installed the tires rub on the steering arms, CPP says you can't have more than a 3.5" backspacing, current wheels have 4.25" backspacing. Anyone seen this problem and found a wheel tie combo to fix it?

Re: Wheel and Tire Size

On the brake forum the drop spindles are bashed quite a bit. The general consensus is to ditch the drop spindles and go with drop springs or coil-overs. The drop springs are better for the suspension geometry and no tire rub issues. Get yourself some stock disc brake spindles and re-use your steering arms. Then sell your drop spindles, or, get skinnier front tires with less back space.
