Looking to lower my 69 convertible 2" all the way around and toss on a 4 wheel
Disc kit from Kore3.
Wheels I have picked out are AR polished Torque Thrust
18x8 with 4.5bs and a 245x40x18 tire for the front
20x10 with 5.75bs and a 295x40x20 tire
Will these fit up under the wheel wells without rolling the lips?
Looking to see a minimum to none at all of sidewall at top dead center of my wheel well opening.
Please let me know I will be getting started I hope before the end of the month
Thanks
Dave

A 295/40/20 is a pretty tall tire, at 29". If you plan to really lower the car,I would go with a 295/35/20 instead, at 28" tall. Other than that, you should be fine with those widths and backspacing.
Just my opinion, though.

What if I were to only lower the car an inch in the rear???
Would the 295x40 work then???
Trying to find a tire manufacturer that produces both sizes
Thanks

Just saying that trying to have a really low ride height, with a 29" tall rear tire, can sometimes be a problem.
Nitto Invo's are available in 245/40/18 and 295/35/20. Very good tires at a decent price.
