What 17 inch wheels for 70 convert

Recommended Posts

Interesting Pakrat: I'll check to see what the backspacing is on these rims. For some reason with those tires on the rear theres a lot of air above the tire to the quarter lip. Now i don't know the history on the leaf springs in this car as they were in the car when it came to me for resto.

I have Foose Knuckles on my 1970 convertible.  18"x9.5" in the rear with 5.5" back space.  17"x8" on the front with 4.5" back space.  No issues with clearance.  My rear fenderwells were hand modified (not cut) - rolled and I cut the rear axle bumper brackets off.
