confused What wheel/offset/tyre combo under your coupe?

Everyone knows you can fit big fat rubber under the 70's coupes, I'm restoring an XC and have just started looking for wheels. gonna run the BFGoodrich 15" 295's, still have to decide on the wheel though, so what do you other fellas run underneath yours?

Re: What wheel/offset/tyre combo under your coupe?

I've got 275/50/15" BF Goodrich Comp T/A's on 15x10" mags on my XC ute that has rolled gaurds. It used to have 295's in the same tyre, but they used to rub over big bumps or with some weight in the back. My diff's 40mm shorter than standard XC though.

BOSS 5.4lt Quad cam V8 is mine
MkI BA XR8 with SS inductions, BMC air filter, Herrods Air Injection, Pacemaker extractors and cats back exhaust.

I have 15 x 10" B45 simmons with 295/50 Yokohama's (previously has BFG's but got a little tired of the car trying to turn around backwards in second gear, Yoky's are a big improvement)

Simmons FR 18x11 rears w/6" backspacing. Tires are 335/30-18 Dunlops for the Viper. Fronts are 17x9 with 255/40-17 tires. Everything fits with no rubbing but the rear required using a 60" wide diff instead of the coupes standard 61" diff.
