Just picked up a 67 coupe (It's my first mustang). Has a built 302 w/4-speed, manual drum brakes and it seriously need an upgrade over the sacked out Cragar S/S wheels. I have always loved the Draglite wheels.

So, my question is recommendation on wheel sizes/tire sizes and apparently backspacing is an issue. I'd like to roll on 17's if thats do-able

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated !!!!!!!

Do draglites even come in 17s?...I am running them in the 15 inch versions..5.5 backspacing on the rear with an 8 inch rim but that has them tucked in pretty good..Most guys run 4.5 backspacing..

I looked them up on Weld's web site and they only list 14 and 15" Draglites. Doesn't look like that particular rim comes any larger.
