15" wheels on a 78, and other quick questions.
Posted 14 July 2005 - 03:01 AM
With my experience in fitting plus size wheels and tires on scoobs (Ive run 225's on both of my Imprezas) I can see right away that the rear fender will need major modification. Probably need to remove that entire "inner" lip that seems to be totally in the way. Thats not a huge deal, since im doing major body repair with this car anyhow.
I was curious as to what size tire to look for. I dont know if 205's will work with the offset of these wheels, and which height to go with the 15" wheels... 195/45's maybe? Not sure.
And are there really any simple suspension handling options for the car? Perhaps even a way of lowering the car if theres nothing pre-fabricated up there. I know all about the lift kits and such, but I dont think ill be off-roading this one...
Oh and no new pics yet, at least not til I finish the motor rebuild and get it back in Hopefully I can have that all done here soon so I can get going with the rest of the bodywork and eventually get her in for a paint job (cheap-o Marco paint job of course, i'd do more but paint is just major $$$ ).

Thats even better to know. So 60 height would be proper for the 15's, or is lower?
as long as you keep the ratio correct you can fit them in without worries cause the rear suspension bottoms out before the tire does if you go even an inch larger just hafta watch the clearance on the torsion bar ends!!
