What backspacing are your wheels?Hey Daniel,, no rubbing no tubbing and running 10s..ive got the hotchkis 2.5 progressive leafs on rear which i had reset another 2 inches.,,,so 4.5 in rear in total. qa1s & hotchkis bar , I did massage the outer of the inner guard if that makes sense,, on the 'hump' under there that joins to the outer skin. speedtech frontend adjustable.
An 18x9.5 with 5.5" bs should work well with 275/35/18's. It would fit the same as the 17x9.5 with 5.5" bs and 275/40/17's that people are running successfully here.After reading most of this thread I've seen several 69s running 18x9.5 but most 68s are running 17x9.5. Will the 18x9.5 work on the 68s? My suspension is stock on the rear. What size tire would work? The wheel I have picked out only come in 8 inch wide in 17s
That is a great twist on mixing the classic rally wheel look with modern sized/profile tires! I was up at Als place in Syracuse, and he had a set of Chromed Vintiques on his yellow RS. I think he said they were 15/7 and 15/8. Looked very nice.
Wheels: Wheel Vintiques front 17 x 7 with 4” BS and rear 17 x 9 with 5" BS
Tires: 235/45R17 front and 275/40R17 rear
Note: 2” drop front QA1 Coilovers, rear 1.5" Hotchkis Springs, used button head bolts on front wheel wells. No rubing.
Sorry, I am "Bias" for 2 reasons :laugh:While restoring this historic drag car back towards Day 1, my thinking was that the color screamed for something other than rally wheels. To keep a period correct look, the obvious choice was Torque Thrust D's with a new set of Polyglass GT's. The car now sits on 15"x7" rims with F60-15's all around. It's amazing what a new set of shoes can do to really set off a car.
