Brad, what did you end up doing, did you go 17 or 18's???
Mike, do you think it "might" be possible to squeeze the rear rims out to 9 1/2 or even 10" on a 295??? or would that cause to much rubbing, Nice combo's guys

I don't think I'd dare with a wider wheel than where it is now. At least not with moving the perches or something in conjunction with the wider wheel.

Thanks Mike, I dont want to do that or any fender lip mods as the car is an original all matching car as it came off the factory floor so I want to be able to revert it back maybe one day. I guess I could get another 8 3/4 housing, shelve the original as just that, original. then move springs in board but a lot of work just to go wider when its probably not needed.


Thanks again Mike, appeciate it

Just an FYI. I did change to 1/2 inch spacers rather than the 3/4 inch.  I was rubbing the fenders a bit out back.  Still left me enough space on the inside.  I am also on the Hotchkis springs now which dropped her about an inch.   Fender lips are not rolled.

Thanks again Goody for the inspiration!!
