    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

    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

    Said it before, I'll say it again, NO 17's on 65-6 cars. They do not belong.
