    Hello, There is a real nice set of Billet Specialities Street Lite rims for sale and I was interested in getting them but I am not sure if they will fit.

    The rims are 10" and have a 5.5 backspace. Anyone know if these will clear my 1968 GTX? I have the factory dana rear end. The tires are 26"x8.5"x15"

    Thanks for your help.

    Is that a set of really small slicks on them? Those tires are small for that wide a rim, but probably put down a good footprint as a result.
    With the small tires, they should fit. 4 1/2 backspace on a 8-8 1/2 rim seems to be best in most cases, so yours would add an inch in both directions, should still center up. You may have to use a small spacer to get the tire away from the leaf spring.
