Okay, so I am overhauling my suspension on my 68 coupe. Along with all the upgrades, I'm upgrading the wheels and tires. I bought a set of 2006 GT wheels and want to know what it will take to make them fit. Ive been told 1.25" adaptors in the front and 1/2" spacers in the rear. but when i look up kits online, some say 1"... Some say 1.25"...

Has anyone done this before? I just want to make sure i buy the right size the first time....

I have included a thumbnail of what the wheels look like so you can see exactly what i am trying to do....

Any help or insight is appreciated..

If those wheels are 17x8 with 5.72'' backspace, you are going to want 1'' spacer on the front 1.25'' will work as well but 1'' gives you 1/4'' more tire to fender clearance, you can also use 1'' on the back or use 1/2'' spacer for more fender clearance, especially if you use like a 255 tire.
