| | 17 x 8 wheels on a 68 coupe
The time has come for me to buy wheels and tires for my 68. I like the look of 17's. I want 17 x 8's. I talked to Mustang Plus and they swear that their torque thrust II's will fit with a 235/45r 17 tire. I believe that they use 43/4" back spacing. Does anyone have any experience with these size wheels? A tire shop I talked to said that ARE claimed they wouldn't fit???? If I can make them fit does that mean that any wheel I find in that size with the 43/4" backspacing will work? I don't have the cash flow to do this on a trial and error basis so I need to ensure that I get it right the first time around.
Only my second day and I'll already be wearing out my welcome. At any rate, thanks for the help.
