Re: 17" TORQUE THRUST II for my 69'

If everything is perfect (rear end) they will work.......A safe beat that looks real good in my opinion is,

17X7 front 235/45 4.0 B/S
17X8 rear 255/45 4.75 b/s

No rubbing and good looks..........My 2 cents...D

Re: 17" TORQUE THRUST II for my 69'

front 17x8 4.75bs 235/45/17 2" drop
rear 17x9.5 5.5bs 255/45/17 1.5" drop

I had a slight rub on the inside left rear when turning in some driveways. A 1/4" spacer fixed it. There's plenty of guys here running the same setup without any issues. If the car is not lowered you may want to consider a little taller tire in the rear, maybe a 50 series.

I have the same rear wheel as ROJO, with 275/40s and 3'' drop springs. No rubs.
