Hello Eric,
I just joined the site. Wondering how you got such large wheels/tires to fit into stock appearing wheel wells?
I'm in Woodburn, IN.
My Stang is a '64.5, 289 (292, .030 over) modified, 4spd. Top-loader, w/ 3.50 to 1, 9" Equa-loc out of a '67 Cougar.
Bought the car in Ma in 1981 & moved out here in 2003. Finished a 7 month restoration last Sept., but we know they are never done!
Wanna chat?

I just bought 17x7 front and 17x8 rear for my '65. Plan on 225s up front and 245s in back. My research says no problem. Preferred look of 16s but was set on Torq Thrust Ms that didn't sell in '16 with the proper back spacing. Also smaller tires are getting fewer.

Just ordered these same Foose rims from CJ Pony parts for my 65. Love how these look on your car I can't wait until mine come. I was a little nervous about getting them to fit in the back, but from what I am reading, its maybe 50/50 chance I'll need to roll the fenders. I got those same specs for the fronts and rears. I still have drums in the back which will probably show, so looking to paint them red before install. Thanks for sharing
