In my experience, the 225 front tire is a safe size to use up front. I run a pretty low stance and have no rubbing issues.
Hi, i am about to buy some 17" wheels to be able to put some good sticky rubbers on my '66 coupe.
I know this has been already discussed but whats the conclusion with 17x8 wheels in front of a 65-66?
My plan is to go with a square setup of 235-45-17 tires, wheels would be torq thrust M 17x8 with 4.5 backspace.
Can i expect that to fit if i only roll the fenders?
I am slowly building my car so i could do some non competitive hpde events next season and the big sidewall rubbers on the 15" wheels just wont do it.
The Arning drop is to improve handling(which is what youre after I believe) not to help wheel fitment.Good feddback thanks!
I did not do the shelby drop yet on mine, Charles Maier suggested me that it would not be needed with 17-18" wheel setups and up.
Ill see how it goes and may reconsider it later....
sticky tires and 17"-18" ect wheels won't help the camber curve whereas the UCA drop will and then the wheel/tire combo can take better advantageI know that, but Charles Maier seems to think that theres not much to gain by doing it with some 17-18" wheels and up with good sticky tires.
which wheels? those are nice. I think the grey would compliment my colors. currently on 15" cragars.
