    Default wheels?

    i would love to put a set of 15x10's on the rear. i don't want the wheel/tire to stick out too far beyond the fender so will a 4.50 in. backspace work without interference? what is the best tire width for a 10in. wheel? thanks in advance,,,,,,mike

    You might have to move the parking brake cable attachment on the trailing arm to the top of the arm for clearance. Not sure even then that there will be enuf room. Might have to go w/ offset trailing arms. Someone else here probably has some experience w/ this mod.

    Hey 73shark,thanks for the reply. i was pretty sure i would at least have to the parking brake, yesterday i talked to a wheel tech and he said i would probably get interference from the sway bar as well. i'm not taking that off.

    A 4in. back space will just clear my rear sway bar. As to tires, your 255/60s will fit on a10in wheel. When I had my Daytona wide body I ran 295/50s . So, tire and wheel size will also depend on the ride height of the rear of your car.

    Hope this helps in some way.
