Right now my rims are 15 X 8 front and rear. Rear tires are 205/60/R15, front are 195/50/R15. Fronts look good now.
Are you just talking about replacing the rear rims with the 15x9? You will stay with the 195/50R15 on the front? are the front rims also 15x8?Mine are 15X8 Ebay rims are 15X9 with a 4 3/4 backspace. Mine are 4 1/4. I have 209/60/R15 now. Lots of room. Thinking 225/60/15 should fit fine.
If corrosion started on the wheels, it is nearly impossible to stop it again. Also from safety aspect: if you have money for edelbrock heads, spent it for good wheels.I had this on my 79 Mustang when I lived in Germany while in the Air Force. It was caused by salt and chemicals used on the autobahn. Paint on rims was not able to stop the salt.
I personally love the aero wheels, which would look awesome on your yellow car:
But I think you want to stick with that style of wheel you have...
