Hi guys, I have a 69 coupe and have had tire rub issues. I have determined thanks to you guys that I don't have enough back spacing. I have Torq-Thrust II's 17X7 on front and 17X8 on back. Looks like only 4 or 4.5 inch backspace.
From what I have read, it looks like I could run 8.5X17 with 4.75 backspacing and P245 series tires on the front, and 9.5X17 with 5.5-5.75 backspacing with P275 series tires on back. Is this going to be too tight? or am I pretty much assured of having enough room with these sizes??
If this is too tight, please suggest a size of 17" wheels and tires that will look good that I know will fit ok. Any help appreciated.
