Think about it. The maximum width of tire you can fit is dictated by the sheetmetal of the fender wells and the placement of the frame rails not the width of the axle. To get the maximum tire width in there, you just need to get wheels with the proper backspacing and rim width.Very old thread I know..
But I'm wondering if a 65-66 differential housing will work
in a 70 chevelle.
I don't care about numbers matching..
I was thinking it might fit ...and perhaps allow a little wider tire under the fenders. May hit something else though?
I agree...just not what I'm looking for sometimes.There are plenty of wheel companies that make wheels with a custom backspace. The ones on my wagon are a perfect example and they weren't outrageously expensive.
