Ok, but why do they fit on one side and not the other?
You never said that one side fit and the other didn't. That does sound like a slipshod repair of collision damage. Maybe the rear framerails got moved. Four wheel alignment check time? Do you have wrinkles in your trunk floor?
are you sure those 2 wheels have the same backspace? ...and if the drum faces to the wheel well lips are that far off, and if the axle is basically "centered" , then , yes , I would venture to say one side has either been pushed in or, one side has had a patch placed over the existing metal , or there is a shitload of Bondo that has been applied at some point. my axle is cocked 1/4 inch to the passenger side, but it's not enough that it bothers me. if I read your post right , you have 1 1/4" of a difference???? man, that's Alot
Sorry, I thought I mentioned it earlier. My bad, I did not proof read. I have 3/4" difference between the left & right side. The weheel fits fine on the Passenger side. The left side was backed into a couple of years ago, but I think it looks straight. I'm visiting the repair shop Monday to have him look at it. Not sure what else to do in this regard. I can return the wheels to my friend who sold them to me, no trouble there. It's just a good deal, and I'm helping to finance his restoration of a Rare convertible E-Body. If I can resolve the issue and keep the wheels, that would be my preference, but thankfully not my only option.
Well, that changes things. 1/4" difference is common side to side, but you are way over that. Hopefully you don't have any frame and trunk floor damage. If the quarter was pushed in that far, I would think the outer wheelwell would show it?
Here's the difference
