1964 Chevelle - widest rear wheel?
I have a custom 1964 Chevelle that my dad and I are building together, all of the paint and body is done, the interior is done, and the Wilwood disc brake conversion is done. We want to do an 18" front wheel and a 20" rear wheel, but want to put the widest rear wheel and tire in the back that we can. Our local wheel shop is telling us that we can fit a 265x45x10 in the back with 5 3/4 back spacing, this sound aggressive to me? i have seen most people putting a 255 on a 9" wheel in the back. any recommendations?
We also have 2" lower spindles on the front at this point (will likely lower it some more) and stock rear suspension thus far but plan to drop it about 3" in rear.
lastly, the car has a stock 10 bolt rear end, the car is a work in progress. eventually we will drop an LS motor in and a new rear end...
