    So I thought I would post up pics of my '68, since my setup is I believe a fairly common and popular pick for our rides...rear, 15x8, 275/60 with 4.5" backspace...fronts are 15 x 6, 4" backspace 225/70...hope this helps! (ok sorry about the tree in the way in the last pic lol....)

      The diameter you have on the front is 27.4". You don't have any issue with rubbing when turning?

      Nope no rubbing, at full lock(sitting still) there's about an inch clearance at the tightest point(back of left wheel when turned left..front-top near the outer fender lip has a little more than that)...that being said, there MAY be a slight kiss if you were turning to the stops while moving over enough bump to move the suspension inward or outward I suppose, but that hasn't happened to me yet as I'm never turning that sharply while moving fast( my pop used to slap me in the back of the head for turning steering to the stops anyway...:rolleyes:) getting in or out of parking spaces etc. though I haven't had any

        Paint? It don't need no stinking paint! Throw on a flat black hood and it's done!
