i need some serious help.

pops ordered those rally II wheels from year one in staggered 17x9 and 8.

he wants to see how it looks if anyone has them on a 64-7. all i have seen on is 68+.

what is the biggest tire in the rear i can put on it and what is a good overall size in the front to use?

he also wants the redline tires.

hes driving me nuts so any help is greatly appreciated!

thanks

well i do know the rears are 5" backspace and the front is 4.5" i was thinking of 275 for the rear but what sidewall? same with the front?

he wants it to sit level too. when i was looking at tires the original tires were 25.6 overall height. i tried to find a rear close to that but it was a 245/50/17. i cant put that on all four its gonna look funny with the wider wheel on the back.

backspace will be fine you want to keep the rears close to the 25.5" for speedo accuracy, 275/40 ?? fronts you will want a little smaller for some rake as they sit high in the front stock say 245/50 Check out Erictheanimals 67' that should give you the look

Check out nturner on this forum. Go to his home page. He's a friend of mine up in Stockton and has 17" Hurst wheels on his '67 GTO ragtop. There's a great pic on his home page.

no i was going to use 245 for the front and 275 for the rear. too wide in front will rub and be nothing but a headache and will track all over the place.

i really liked the stance on that black one with the bandits. looks really nice. he didnt post tire size tho. i posted there to see if he will answer. hope so will save alot of time.
