I've had 16x8's with 225/50/16's on my '66 since about 1989. You will need an
aftermarket upper control arm to accomplish this feat. In general, they swing
in a more preferable arc and miss the fender opening when at ride height,
unlike the stock upper arm which swings CLOSER to the opening at ride
height and moving dynamically. You can cheat by using stupidly high ride
heights and/or different rim sizes but that is basically where it's at..... the
right way or the not quite right way.
The 65/66 is a unique deal because there isn't much fender leeway on that car.
Fenders on my GT are also un-flared fiberglass units, pretty unforgiving as far
as tire contact is concerned.
fast65ford- I just noticed you were talking 55 series...... that would
be even a tighter fit on 65/66. Very tall tire.
I had them on my '68 at one time. Almost too much on that car,
even with the trick UCAs.
They were one of the first sets Maier ever made. and a royal PITA to
install. Had to make templates for all the emblems and letters.
I think I had 17 hours per side to fit them out of the box.
Maybe an additional 5-7 hours went into them prior to the paint booth
but I don't know for sure, I don't paint cars......
Hey everyone. So I was planning to weld up the antenna hole for a clean looking fender, but now I’m having second thoughts because I do like to use my radio for actual FM music... but then my body worked uncharacteristically fast and welded up the hole before I got a chance to tell them not to...
I've been dealing with this wonderful problem recently, and prayed it was just valve stem seals. The smoke doesn't show up until the engine is warmed up. The smoke is white with maybe a slight blue tint on there, everyone else is saying its just white, I personally think it looks a bit blue...
So, I'm a bit uncertain of how long my 66 car sat before I obtained it. But I know for sure it was atleast 3 years. How many times it was ran, I'm not sure.
Anyhow, after a small carb mishap (some of you may have seen my other thread), I noticed when I tore the carb down there was a significant...
I've received a number of parts for my 5.0 install but have yet to get the FelPro gasket set. I don't know what main seal (or even how many types there are) will be included. But I do know that for an engine that's been sitting for a while it would probably be wise to install a new one while...
Hey folks. Quick question for you all.....
What is you preffered sub-frame connector for a 1967-68 coupe? Having searched all around I feel like the Detroit Speed version is what I will choose. But, I also like the TCP setup with a eye down the road for their whole bracing kit. My fear with...
