    Is anyone running an 8 inch wide wheel up front on a 64 B body? Can it be done with a 4.5 offset? I think I found some street wheels I can buy without needs to have custom wheels made if so.

    Why do you want to run an 8" wheel on the front? They won't work any way will rub frame rails and front of fenders when turning!

    for having a little autocross fun. So I guess 7 is it? 4 inch back spacing or 0 offset

    - - - Updated - - -

    Whats the offset/backspacing on the front? It doesn't hit on the inside or outside? How tall is the tire?

    Maybe the OP wants to run what HE wants. Maybe he doesn't need people trying to change his mind or insult him. Not everyone wants to drive 55 like a scared man on parole. Maybe the OP likes his car to handle better than stock.
