I just picked up a 1964 1/2 coupe and the tires are shot. I was wondering what the biggest wheel i could fit on the car would be. I want to put a thicker back tire on it and was hoping i could upgrade to 15" wheels.


Thanks

P.S. if anyone has any ideas on what wheel would look good it be much appreciated. the car is red with 2 black racing stripes.

I have 245/45R17 rear tires on my 1966 Fastback and with my new leafsprings and shocks, I don't have any issues with them snagging the fender lips anymore (my old springs were sagging so bad that air shocks had been fitted to raise it a little. Not recommendable). You shouldn't have any trouble fitting 15'' wheels on there, just make sure you take advantage of the back spacing if you decide to increase the width.

I have fitted Foose Nitrous II wheels on my '66 and I think they look great.

Hope you get it sorted!
