Hey BA, That looks good with the new wheels. It looks much better in your post drop pics with the nose down some. How did you drop the front, 1 inch lowering springs and shelby drop?

Also here are the tire sizes.

Front - 205/50R15
Rear - 225/50R15

My exhaust has just 4" of clearance.

Hey, I just noticed that you have the same issue as I have now. I just bought some 05 bullitts for my 65 coupe and not sure what size spacers I need. Did you end up with a solution for front/rear that worked well? Thanks.

just bought these bullits from my friend. they have 275/40's all around that are shredded to ****. new tires will be 255/40 in the rear, and probably 235/40 in the front so i can lower the hell outta it.

What is the widest tire you can fit into a 68 without tubbing or rolling the fenders?

Yea, ebay is the way to go. I looked at pretty much everyone out there and Ebay was the cheapest. Just type in Mustang wheel spacers and you'll find em. Good Luck!!

i was at the good guys show last weekend and found a booth with countless sizes and types of wheel spacers. youre lucky i picked up a card

lugnutking.com

the website doesnt show the spacers but give them a call and tell them your application. im sure they could help you out. like i said, they had just about ever size of wheel spacer you could think of.

Haven't posted in a while and have had little time to spend on the car recently. I did throw the wheels on I bought 3 years ago lol. Still need to dial in the stance, have the Ron Morris coil-over kit on the front which makes setting ride height a breeze and will be dropping it next time I'm at the shop. Rear leafs are Global West 5 leafs with 1 inch drop and Del-A-Lum bushings, not sure how much lower I can go in the rear, clearance to the fender lip is tight.

Front 17x8 4.5BS 245/45/17
Rear 17x9 5.5bs 285/40/17
