Ok so along the long list of thigns that I would like to change on my car, the rims are one of them.

I've gotten the 5-4.5 bolt pattern info easily, but I am searching for the maximum width that can be installed in the rear and in the front (seperate sizes) and what the heck is the offset(s) that are acceptable.

Looking at the Crager S/S 15" as replacements. They have 15x10!! :yikes: Not too sure if that will fit, or even if that will look ok. A more reasonable situation would be (4x) 5x7 or (2x)5x7 front and (2x) 5x8 for the rear.

Tire rack says that the stock tire installed on the 66 was 185/75-14, usefull but not in my case. My car has a transplanted 302 and C4 transmission from a 68 and I am guessing that the spedo gear is probably still geared towards the 68 tire sizes not the 66. So, a 68 mustang shows 205/75-14 as being the stock size. Still just a little bit off from the 235/60-14 I have installed on there now!

As long as the original spedo gear hasn't been changed out and the matching rearend was installed *sigh*, I need to keep the outer diamter size around: 663.1mm.

Quote:
Width (mm) x Aspect Ratio = Section Height
Section Height x 2 = Combined Section Height
Combined Section Height + Wheel Diameter (mm) = Tire Diameter (mm)
1 inches = 25.4 millimeters


205/75-14
205mm * .75 = 153.75mm
153.75mm * 2 = 307.5 mm
307.5mm + 355.6 = 663.1mm

I'm glad you like the chart.

Since I am in MD when I saw the site in the logs, I decided to grab a user ID so I might actually have more information on local events for classics.
