I am also looking at a set of 17x8 in front and 17x9 in rear. I have disc brakes in front, and the front of my car is lowered 2" with the rear lowered 1-1/2". Does anyone know the minimum backspacing I would need? Oh yeah, and mine is a 67 if that matters.What brakes? I have discs up front on mine and 17x8 with 4 3/4" backspacing works well. Is it lowered at all?
Anyone else know the answer?The seller told me the backspacing was 5.75" on all the wheels, which I'm virtually certain is too much for my car. He said he would re-measure and call me if his measurements were different.
I took my car down to my friend's shop and it looks like the biggest backspace I can get is about 4" on the front and 5" on the rear. Does that sound about right?
