I'm finally on the homestretch with MY 65 gto resto, and I'm shopping for a 18x8 Front 18x9 rear rim setup, I think I'm going with the ridler 850 rims but need help on sizing the tires anyone have a similar rim size that has fitted tires that can help? Thanks in advance

Is it ridler 650 like the ones on my car? Look at my garage then look at my wheels. I have 17x8 all the way around. 255/40/17 in the rear.225/40/17 on the front. I did have 17x9.5 of another type in the rear with 4.5 offset. My current 17x8 with 4.5 offset is about a 1/4 from touching the lower fender by the moulding.

Could not figure out how to edit from my phone. But the front is the one that was close to rubbing when I turn. The prior 17x9.5 would rub on the tears even with some modification on the inner feeder well if you know what I mean.

Not 18", but will give you an idea...

This is what I am running: 245/45/17 front & 274/40/17 rear on American Racing Torque Thrust II. The wheels are American Racing Torque Thrust II (polished) 17x8 (front) & 17x9.5 (rear). The tires are BFG GForce Sport C2. So far I like how the tires perform.
