I have a 1976 Ford Gran Torino Elite w/ a 460bbl. I was wondering what the widest 15" wheel and tire combo is that I can put out back without having to modify the suspension? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
From person experiance, a 15x8 4" offset, with a 295/50/15 tire fits just fine.
I know you can stick 10" rims on the back, but you need to watch the offset, and the lip of the quarter panel.
I had a '76 Elite a while back running 17's, and it had 245/35r17 tires, and the rims I had barely cleared the inner wheel house.
I am running 245/50/16's with a 16x7 steel cv police rim on my 72 with plenty of room on my '72 fastback.
Thanks every1 for helping me decide on my 72 gran torino sport wheel package! I bought the 2010 Carrol shelby cobras with 1" 1/4 wheel adapters and got this combo with no rubbing,no cutting,no tubbing!
Front; 17x9=245's 40's/rear 17x10.5=315's 40's deep dish on rear!
