'67 Mustang in desperate need of wheels

My brother needs to know the biggest size rim with the biggest size tyre in a 15".
Would a 8 1/2" rim with a 245-60-15 fit under the guard?
It has a 5" rear offset with a standed length diff and sits very low.

Thanks.

I think I have an article in one of my mustang mags about what wheel sizes and offsets fit which mustangs. I can probably copy that and get that to you if your brother is interested.

Re: '67 Mustang in desperate need of wheels

I had a quick squiz and found one article that states 17x8's are the biggest for the 67-8's... That would be front and rear.
225/60/15's fit nicely all the way around, I don't see why a 245/60/15 wouldn't fit under the rear. Has the rear wheel arch lip been rolled??

I'll keep looking and see what else I can find...
