I'm putting together a 64 Pontiac Tempest and looking to buy the rims and tires. I am putting 17X8 (4.5" back spacing) in the front with 245/40ZR17 tires. Does anyone know the largest rim and tire sizes along with the backspacing I can go with in the rear without rubbing and clearance problems? Your help is appreciated!

Hey thanks for the info. I have considered many different wheels and have always liked the torque thrust style. Summit racing has just added a 17 inch torque thrust to their catalog made by American Racing. I would like to upgrade to 17 inch. I was hoping to squeaze at least a 9 inch rim with just the right backspacing but don't want any rubbing. Here is a link to the rim I am taking about. Looks like the mustang bullet style wheel with a 4.75 bolt pattern.
