ok i was looking into mustang and fords mag november 2001 issue and was looking at a wheel and tire chart.

i'm looking to put a eagle 211 17x9.5 wheel in the rear. on a 69-70 it showed for a 17x9 have a 5.5 backspacing and a 275/40/17 in there to be safe. now the question is on a 73 mach, do i apply to the chart the same? do i have about the same thing going for me than a 70. but it seems as if the 73 is all bigger.


do you think a 17x9.5 and a 315/35/17 tire will fit in the wheel well. or i just go what they recommend on aa 70 stang with a 275/40/17 tire.

Even though the 71-73's are wider the rear is wider too. I put a 9" from a '69 in my '71 & had 28 X 11 slicks with a ton of clearance. I have seen SVO wheels on some 71/73's. There is a lot of room but the 2 are different.
