ORIGINAL: restomod66

Hi Soarin,
Maybe you can help me. i just purchased a restomod 66 stang and the front wheels rub the fender wall on hard turns. what do you recomend. The car is now equipped with P205/75/R14 tires mounted on cragar ss 15"rims these are the problem with rubbing. The rears are fine with P255/60R 15's moiunted on 16" cragar ss rims. This car is 4 wheel disc brakes and stops on a dime. i just want to eliminate the rub factor up front. I still cannot upload a pic because I gat an error message.


Wow that is a fairly narrow tire. You may be able to go with a smaller sidewall like a 60 or 50 even instead of that 75. Also, what is your backspacing on the rim? Man you got a 255 in the back, that is some good sized rubber.

nice mirror it looks stock.

i'm thinking chrome bullit mirrors or the old paintable euro style from the 80's.
I can't find any info on the old euro style (porsche) mirrors . I had them on a car many years ago. I kinda like them
they've gone the way of the "members only" jacket
