SBCA96 Posted September 25, 2005 Report Share Posted September 25, 2005 I want to have either 16 inch or 17 inch diameter rims on my 63 Avanti, I would like to run a 275/40 series tire, though will probably end up with ~ 245/40. I have been eyeballing the 03/04 Mustang Cobra rims, but the offset is wrong. I know I can get bolt-on adapter/spacers, and know that people have put them on the early Mustangs. I have been surfing the web for rims that fit early Mustangs and they all look so crappy. Has anyone already done the fitment proceedure and knows what rim size/offset/width is max for an Avanti? I have a set of Keystone rims on the car now, they are 14 (too small) and 7 inch width. I have 245/60 tire on the rim and it clears. Because of the small diameter, it gets close to the zerk fitting and the tie rod. I figure with a 16 or 17 it would clear those areas. The Keystones were bought for my Hawk, and transfered to the Avanti after the Hawk was totalled. I want a 5 spoke wheel, the Cobra rims look like exactly what I want, but I would rather not have spacers if I can avoid them. Tom Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
