Re: 1969...What size rims..?
on the rear, you should have 12" from the inside wheel well to the inside fender lip. there will be upto 1/4-1/2" difference on the right rear. I just order 17x9.5 for the rear with 275/40/17 Firestone wideovals. I came up with 5.5" back spacing. American racing said the TTII is actually about 10" wide and that the 5.5 would be about perfect. As for the front I will be running 17x8 with 4.75" backspacing and using a 245/45/17. I am going to use 2" drop springs in the front and try 2" in the rear, but may have to go with 1.5". I am hoping that the rims will be in in the next couple of days. They (American Racing) said it can take upto 6-8 weeks!!! The TTII's i order are the one with the grey center(205) I think it will look slick on a black car.
