M/T S/R 26x10x15 front tires on 15x8 rims with 4.5" backspace. 26x12x15 rear tires on 15x10 rim with 5" back space. Rear springs moved in .75" with B body rear. 0 arch rear springs. Car has been lowered about 3" overall and I may go another couple inches if i can pull it off. I could go at least another inch wider in back, mabe even 2" if I rolled the fender lip. I could use another .25" of back space on the front and I could add another inch of tire up there, but hey, I got these wheels for $30 each, so I can't complain too much.

The e-body rear axel is winder then the b-body axel as fare as I know. So you should be able to fit wider tires with a b-body axel.

The 67 Bbody is the rear I used.  This worked well with 9.5 rims.  You can fit the same size rims, regardless of the rearend B or E.  You just need to order the correct offset

You need to get the Dr Diff, 1.5" relocation spring hangers.  Its a cheap bolt on and give yous tons of room for wide tires.   Search for him in the threads for his contact info.

The trick to using a B body rear is that you move the springs in, the B body rear sits right on top of them, and with no other mods, and you can put 13" wide tires under there. If anything other than this was done you the rear, then you have to figure out what rim back space and tire sizes will fit on a case by case basis. BTW, 65-67 B body rears will require less back space than similar 68-70 b body rears. All of this is explained through out the forum, and if your still confused, there is plenty of help here to sort it all out.

i was thinking about new wheels for my challenger
but,
i went for a ride in a friends road runner with 18 wheels, and i was very surprised how rough riding it is ?
it seems to handle very well, but man, is it ever bumpy and choppy?
is this normal with the big wheels or is something wrong with his car ?

btw,
buddys road runner looks really stupid with the 18 wheels and low profile tires, i think the car may be to big?

I have 17s with lower profile tires (245/45 up front) and the lower profiles definitely give a sharper ride than the oem tires!
I also have big torsion bars and hemi springs, so every pothole or bump jars my bones and makes me cringe.

i have 245/45 17s as well, and I really need to up the $$$ to bilstein, koni, or QA1 shocks.  Problem with the shocks spec'd out for the e'body, they aren't designed with the wheel rates that we install into our cars.  1"+ t-bars and bigger sway bars need better shocks.  1" is just passable right now in my car... and I want to go HIGHER on my wheel rates.
