1965 - 1966 Tire and Wheels Picture Thread

Ok the idea of these picture threads are just that PICTURES! Many enthusiasts
first upgrade is in the wheel and tire category. Many have question on what they will look like and what will fit. Instead of searching the entire forum for a combo or what is needed for making them fit this will be the place to post pictures of your wheel and tire combo and any modifications needed to make them fir…example rolling the wheel wells.
Having pictures will better enable members to pick the combo that they like best.

All discussion of the picture threads should be done in the Picture Thread Discussion and not in the picture thread, other wise it wouldn’t be a picture thread. So if any one has suggestions or want to ask a question about fit the discussion is the place to ask them.

So post in the Picture thread should contain Pictures of the wheels and the following info.

Year of Mustang
Wheel Size
Tire Size
What modification, if any, needed to make it fit
And is you car lowered and how much.

I have posted one in the Fox body section to give everyone an idea so lets now see thoes Wheel and Tire Combos!




So , let me get this straight…..your Honda has 1.6 liters, whereas my bottle of Mountain Dew has 2?

"When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe. -Jesus

-1988 Ford Mustang GT Convertible, 331 Trick Flow Stroker with a Tremec 3550....oh yea and a 1.6 liter V-TECH motor to work the convertible top.

66 with 17s no rubbing

Hi guys, here's a couple of 66s we put wheels on. Both cars have Showwheels Streeter rims.
Details
Front 17x7 @ 4.25" backspace with 215/45R17
Rear 17x8 @4.75" backspace with 225/45R17.
The majority of our customers aren't interested in resolving rubbing issues or modifying their car to fit rims therfore this combo is set up to fit under without problems.
Regards, Chris Morris, Showwheels. Contact us anytime regarding our products.

Id like to see a picture of the car, so i can see the difference in looks with the different size tires. Can a person tell by looking at them?
