  1. Classic Tech
    Hi everyone, looooong time no post. Been busy with other projects, etc. I'm finally looking to get rid of my 14" Cragar's on my 66' coupe and put some 17's on so I can eventually fit 13" Cobra brakes. I'm really leaning towards a set of ~2004 Bullitt wheels in anthracite, 17 x 8" all...

    Okay.. Right now I have an all around set of 14 inch cragars on my 1966 Coupe (289).. I have the scott drake front suspension on the front but it's pretty much stock. Right now I have a tire width on 215 all around and I plan on keeping that width for the front. However for the back I want the...

    How much back spacing is needed for a 255/60R15 in the rear of a 67? And for a 215/60R15 in the front of a 67? I do not want them to stick out way past the fender. I'd like some AR torq thrust D's but they only have 3.25" bs.

    Hey everyone. Just been looking at some wheels and I've been looking at the 17x7 ones but all of the pre-made ones I've seen have a 4.0" BS. I was looking for a 4.25" or 4.5" BS though. Will a 1/4" spacer or 1/2" spacer work behind the wheel to make this possible? Trying to fit this on a 1965...

    Hey- So I know there are about a million and one threads about "do these rims fit" and such. But as I am new to the world of wheels I am interested in learning more then just if one set of wheels will fit. So I've read about what offset and backspacing is, and I've done a ton of research about...

    Hey all, I know this is a tired subject, but I need some been there, done that info just to be sure. I have my trusty little 66 Coupe, and I want to run 17 inch rims. I'm told that 17's with 225 rubber and 4.25 backspacing would be perfect. Is this true? Will it matter that I may be changing my...

    Hey guys I need to order a replacement Weld Racing Draglite wheel for my Mustang but not sure which one to get, so it can match the other one I have. I need a 15x7 4-lug wheel for the front. I don't know the exact backspacing for it and the other bolt circle measurements needed. Thanks for any...

    This is really starting to get on my nerves. I find a good looking set of 4 lug wheels in the proper bolt pattern. I have scoured threads and the internet to come up with our cars offset being 10mm and late model Foxes being 20mm. I want to know if it's better to go with more positive offset or...
