Biggest Wheels & Tires for 69 RS CONV.
I recently bought a 69 RS Convert. Looking for tires and wheels. What's the widest wheel/tire in a 15" and or 17" that will fit without cutting the body. It has a 10 bolt single leaf now,I'm going to install a 12 bolt multi leaf later. (unless someone has a better idea) My friend had a 69 RS Coupe and he thinks his Billet Spec. wheels were 17x9 w/ 5" Backspacing and 245/40/17 or 245/45/17 tires all the way around. It looked good (lowered) but with the Z-rated tires darted around on the rutts in the road.I like the look of the 17's if I could get some in a lesser speed rating that would drive better I would but would rather go 15" and have it drive better on our crappy roads. The car has 15x8 repro. ralleys w/4" bs now and 245/60/15 and they just barely rub occasionally. Any ideas appreciated.
