Ok i think im gonna go with the AR's Shelby Torq-Thrust M for the rims. A friend who works at a tire dealership told me a 17x9 wheel is not wide enough for a 275 tire...is this true?

Default Do not go with Vintage Wheels. Much better quality out there. Look at Billet...

DO NOT GO WITH VINTAGE - Much better quality wheels out there - Vintage center caps are cheap plastic and break constantly and the rims look cheap in person.

Billet, Centerline and other rims are far superior quality and better looking as well. Hope this helps.

Hi Jonward786,

Here is some information I had posted in the past that may help you. The only thing I would do differently is go with a more narrow tire up front. With old suspension components, my tires would hit the wheel well trim on very steep dips. I cannot roll the fenders, which "may" solve the problem, because I found some body work there, that prevents me from rolling them.

Anyway, here is the information:

"I've got a 67 fastback....

American Racing 605MS765C on the front, 17x8 w/4.5" backspace
Tires up front: 245 45 17 BFGs KDWs

American Racing 605MS7965C on the back, 17x9 w/6.0" backspace
Tires out back: 275 40 17 BFGs KDWs

Yes, you will need to trim the metal piece shown in the previous post. Not the whole thing, but just enough for a comfortable clearance."

Here are some links to the pictures:

Good luck!
