Rear Wheel size
« on: September 14, 2020, 02:29:40 PM »
Well my SAAC friends,
I'm looking to put some bigger tires on the back of my 65 Fastback open track car. I'm running 15 X 7 Torque Thrust D's on the front with Goodyear 6.00 X 15 tires. I do have pretty aggressive fender flairs on the back and would really like a bit more rubber in back. Could anyone suggest sizes that they have had good luck with? I was thinking about 15 X 8.5 but I don't want to get into rubbing issues. So if anyone has experience with bigger tires that don't rub I would appreciate wheel and off set suggestions? Thanks in advance :)

I run Torque thrust 8.5" in the rear with the .950 neg. offset. For tires I'm restricted to either Goodyear or Hoosier bias race tires, but for track day use you might look into less expensive options. I hesitate to recommend tire sizing as this will vary greatly depending on your particular set-up.
