  8. I moved you to classic talk ,someone should be able to help you here . And welcome to Stangnet :welcome:
     
  9. alright! thank you
     
  10. i recommend a 17X8 with a 4.75 BS on the rear, that will allow a 255 tire without any issues or up to 275 with some minor clearancing. On the front a 17X7 with 4.5 BS
     
  11. but im running MB wheels on the Discount tire website that are 17 x 8 in front and 17 x 9.5 in rear with both of them being 4.5" backspacing, also if you call Discount tire they will actually have an operator that can talk to you and let you know what fits as well
     
  12. alright thanks!
     
  13. alright I'll check them out! thanks
     
  14. could I run 17x8 on front and rear with 235 or 245'?
     
  15. yes i believe the front tires that i am running are 235s but ill check tomorrow morning when i get home from work to verify
     
  16. Yes I'm running 235/45 up front and 265/40 out back
     
  17. Said it before, I'll say it again, NO 17's on 65-6 cars. They do not belong.
