Hello All,

Once again, annoying everyone about wheels and tires for my 69 RR.....my heads been going around in circles for weeks on this topic.....

i want something that looks fat and tall up the back, with the deepest dish possible without modifying the fenders or jacking the suspension up.

the best option I've found so far in Australia is the following wheels in 15x9 with a 5"BS (+0 offset).....I was going to go with the 15x8 with 4.5BS which everyone says will fit however i want that slightly deeper dish if possible.

Does anyone know if these will fit a 69 RR without any modifications??
for the record, I'm going to run with 275/60r15 tires.

Also, while I'm at it, what rim would you suggest for a 235/60r15 up front....(or suggest a better tire)
i do want some rake however nothing OTT.

I think it would work but the 5 inch offset would be tight to the springs. I could be wrong.Would not be the first time. I have 15 by 10 with 4 1/2 bs on back on my 70 Bee.

This is such a simple thing to figure out on your own with just a straight edge and a tape measure. Take your wheels off and lay a straight edge solidly against the drum extending out to the wheel opening then measure from the back of the straight edge to the wheel lip, then from the back of the straight edge to the inner tub.. check in several locations. Now you know what you need, start looking at tires that will come close to filling the tubs then select the right rim width and offset. Also keep in mind rims are measured from inside lip to inside lip so a 10" wide rim is more like 11" overall. The crappy part is unless you pay big $ you're usually stuck with less than ideal backspacing on a 9" wide rim since affordable rims are mass produced to fit many models.

If a deep dish is what you want why 275's, unless you narrow your axle the only way to get a deeper dish is go as wide as possible and get a rim that pushes the edge out there. As far as tires go, you can go to many online tire dealers and view the physical dimensions of any given tire size. Doing this will let you view section widths, sidewall height and desired rim widths.

My car is a 69 Charger which I believe should be nearly identical and I'm running 305's (12" wide) on 10" wide rims with zero offset, 5" in, 5" out with just a little wiggle room. My buddy has a 69RR and also has the same exact setup so it will fit.

Yes the ones you posted will fit but will put the majority of the rim to the inside killing the deep dish look.

This is about the max you'll get for deep dish without modifying your axle.

thanks....my biggest issue is the car is sitting on a boat at long beach CA and i will only get it into Australia in the first week of Novemeber, and yes....i know the most sensible thing to do would be to wait for it to arrive and then measure it up....only issue is its not that easy to wait

All I can contribute to this is...i had a 10 1/2 x 28 slick on a 8 1/2 centerline auto drag, with 4 7/8 backspace on my 69 runner, and it fit fine. The same wheel/tire on my 62 Savoy needs .300 spacers, so essentially 4.5 b's .
I prefer wheels with more backspace. If the tire is too close to the springs, spacers fix it. If it's too close to the fender, then what?
(Also, that same vintage Dodge guys advice isn't real helpful cause they have much more/higher wheel openings on chargers/superbees than us roadrunner guys.Lol )
