My back rims on my 68 are 18x9 with 275/40/18 tires. My understanding is that's the biggest (widest) you want to go regarding the tires. You may get away with 9.5 inch rims with same tire but that's about it. It's pretty tight in there right now...
class67, I am considering 18x9.5. Do you know your distance from your hub face to the inner fender skirt? I am trying to determine my backspace . I have a very similar stance. I am wondering if I should go with a 5.5 or 5.75. Do you get any tire rub under hard cornering or bumps? Judging by that nice paint your not rubbing on the outside!
Trackman....I do not know the distance but I would go with the 5.75 BS (JMO) unless you can or have rolled your fender lips, then the 5.5 would probably be ok. And yes, I have no problems with rubbing at all, then again, my suspension is pretty stiff.
