Hey Doc- Steel wheel sizes
Permalink  
 


Hey DB- Do you happen to know the size & backspacing on the steel wheels you put on your 69?  Have a PN saved somewhere by any chance?

 

I've got some new (slightly used) BFGs inbound and i'm contemplating going with steelies and poverty caps for the new tires and keeping the centerlines for variety.

15 X 8 with 4.25 BS with the 295/50/15. 4.5 BS works too. You have a 60" wide rear end so you can go straight 4" BS.

 I kinda wish now that i would have opted for the domed pistons instead of the flat tops and the 04 cam instead of the 03. LOL. Figures.

 I don't have enough compression or rear gear to support that. I gave it serious thought when it was going together
