View Full Version : Wheel and tire fitment question for 17x9 wheels on a 65

04-04-2013, 11:41 AM
Has anyone installed 17x9 wheels with a 5 inch backspace and 255/55-17 tires? I have been doing some measuring and it is close enough that I am nervous. I thought maybe someone has already tried or successfully done that. The rear suspension is all stock on my 65. My goal was to fill the wheel well as much as possible and use a relatively tall tire. I have seen 275/60-15 tires squeeked in, but wouild like to try the Rev100 anthracite wheels in a 17 inch.

Any feedback appreciated.
