Widest wheels for TC?

Does anyone know if 13 x 7 inch, or 14 x 7 inch rims, with a fairly deep inset, fit the TC Cortina? I am currently thinking of widening the original steelies to 7 inch, but i am worried they they might foul up with guards. Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: Widest wheels for TC?

i've got 16X7's under my guards and the width is definitely not an issue. ride height vs. turning was an issue until i rolled the front guards

Re: Widest wheels for TC?

Thanks for the info mate. I am currently restoring a TC, and i had to apply a little bit of body filler to one of the guards where it had been pranged. Can the guard still be rolled, without going back and taking all the putty off? Did the wheels increase the turning circle radius?

if the bog is on the lip of the guard then u'll be reapplying it.
dunno about the turning circle though, if it did change it's not noticable
