I am planning to install the 13" baer brakes on my '69 along with 17 inch americans. Any reccomendations on f/r wheel width and backspacing? Tire sizes? Any ideas appreciated.

I've got 17x7 fronts with 245/45/17's and 17x8 rears with 255/45/17's - backspacing is 4-1/2" all around. Everything fits fine with the car lowered 2". Check it out at my site below.

RockyMtnRacer,

Did you order the wheels with custom backspacing? I also have a Baer 13 inch front 12 inch rear set up on my 67 and have been looking at the TTII wheels. I thought only 4.25 and 4.75 B.S. are available as standard sizes for 7 and 8 inch wide wheels from American Racing. I was hoping to use the 17x8 with 4.75 B.S. The custom backspacing cost $$!

Thanks

ONE more question on the wheels- any ideas on
the best place to buy? Would I have to buy custom offset wheels directly from American?
thanks for the info.
