17x8 Wheels on 1967 GTO
I'm a newbie here. I have a 1967 GTO restored with 14" dry rotted wheels and tires and wish to upgrade to 17" for more modern look and room for future 4 wheel disc brakes. I have factory front discs and rear drums now.
Ok, I've been reading here for hours and I'm still not finding what I need, so here's my question.
I want to put HRH Classic Alloy Wheels 17x8, 5x4.75", 4" BS, -12mm offset on the front and back with 225/45/17 tires in front and 245/40/17 in rear.
The supplier is concerned the tire will rub in the front, because of the 8" and the wheel I want is not made in 7" (17x7).
I read the diameter should be 27.7" or less to avoid rub and the 225/45/17 is 26.1, so that part is good, but there is still concern for the width. A lot of folks with 17" seem to have 4.5 or more BS, but the style I want is 4".
Bottom line, will these fit? If not why and suggestion on what the limitations are please.
Thanks in advance.
