I am still kicking around what wheels I want and am now leaning to 16 x 8's on my 65 coupe. No rolled fenders, standard suspension front and back. I have heard of others with ball joint interference on this size. Just want to know for SURE before deciding on wheels. Thanks!

I have that combo, it's probably mine in the chart. I do have 620 lb drop springs, but no wedge, no Shelby drop, no fender rolling. 16x8 with 4.5" backspace. It's tight on the ball joint, but it does fit. It needs the tape on weights. The only rubbing I've ever got was in the rear when I had 3 good size adults in the car plus a real heavy toolbox in the trunk, over a big dip and it was a slight rub. I've driven it probably 800-1000 miles on this combination.
