Would like some advice regarding what size rims & tyres will fit my 69 Mach 1. I would like to fit some Cragar S/S wheels - 15x7 or 8" on the front with 235/50x15 tyres and 15x10 with 295/50x15 tyres on the rear. Will they fit without clearance problems?
Front suspension / brakes are all standard except for upper control arms lowered 1". Rear 9" all std except for disc brake conversion done.
Any advice regarding these wheel/tyre combo appreciated.

I have Cragar SS, 15x7 all around with BFG T/A's.
On the front are 225 60r15, rear are 245 60r15.
IMO, the rear could/should be wider.

Do us a favor and do 235/60R15 up front... 50's just wont look right. Cragar S/S rims will fit your car... 15x7 235/60R15's here all the way around

I agree that the 235/50s would not look right. The 235/60s will fill the fronts much better. I am also running 235/60s all around, but feel the rear could use a bigger tire. I''ll be upgrading the rears to 275/50s, as soon as I wear them out.
