I'm trying to put either 18" or 17" wheels on my 1970 Mach 1. I'd like to get the widest tire possible front and rear. Anyone have suggestions. I've seen some fitment guides but I'd like to hear from real people. Thanks!
I'd say 17" are the biggest you would realistically want because of space, dodgestang has a chart, which is completely made from what real people have reported on what they're running, complete with suspension mods, etc. Really thin tire profiles make driving no fun.
Well, I think 275 is pushing it on an 8" rim - I've got 265's on an 8" and I wouldn't want to go any bigger with the tire on that size wheel, because it would look silly and probably wouldn't fit very well. It'll be even worse on a shorter profile tire (which will happen if you've got 17"ers)
