Us Mags U533 and Hotchkis Tvs-
« on: August 02, 2018 - 01:30:32 am »
Hi guys,

I've been reading this topic for several years and now it is the time of my project to decide on my wheels size. The wheels will be the US Mags INDY CONCAVE - U533.

My car is a challenger 74 Hotchkis TVS system, doc diff spring relocation and stock rear end.The sizes I was thinking is front 255/60/15 and 295/60/16  with BFG TAs, wheels 8 and 9 inches.

I have no idea about the back space/offset but I want the fender to look filled with the tire. The car is lowered due to the Hotchkis setup.

I actually measure the rear and attached a picture with the dimensions and space available.

Please let me know your opnions.

Thanks

295/50-15's I like & i've run them allot.... Good choice.....  Using the stock axle with the spring inboard you need about 5.75 BS

Up front I prefer a 235/60-15.... Practically the same height as the 295/50 but narrower, still wide enough to look good but narrow enough that even when the car sits a little low rubbing isn't usually an issue....  If you run more than 3.75 BS with a 15" wheel the wheel will hit the upper control arm.... So a 15x7 on center or max 3.75 BS

do you think the 295/60/15 would fit instead of 50s?

Far as I've seen the only 295/60-15 that was available was the BFG drag radial..... It's not available anymore..... 

But FWIW it is a 29" tall tire & it comes very close to the front of the wheelhouse.....
