    For 1962 Dodge Polara 500 can I fit a 15 x 8 wheels without any modifications on the rear?

    And I'm thinking 15 x 7 on the front.

    Also what would be the widest tires I can fit with no issues?

    Any pictures would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    For 1962 Dodge Polara 500

    Can I fit a 15 x 8 wheels without any modifications on the rear? Yep, with 4.5" back space.

    And I'm thinking 15 x 7 on the front. Yep also.

    Also what would be the widest tires I can fit with no issues? 275/60-15 rear, 225/70-15 front work well together as they have the same rolling dia.

    I even modified my wheels to accept the 14" hubcap to keep the stock look.

    Any pictures would be appreciated. See my photo gallery - http://www.forbbodiesonly.com/moparforum/vbpicgallery.php?do=big&p=14401

    Thanks - No probs ;)

    Okay so if I go with 275/60/15 on rear and 225/70/15 on front (both with 4.5" backspace) is the 62 Polara going to look stout? It has a rebuilt 383 that will have a good hungry sound.

    I am going to go custom wheels but somewhat tame. Maybe American Racing. My other two Mopars have factory look wheels. I'd like to make this one a bit edgy with a bad--- look.

    Thanks.
