    Hey guys, just bought a stock original 70' Skylark not too long ago and I need help on choosing tires. I want to go with Cragar Soft 8's and get this thing on the road asap. The rim size I have in mind is 17 inches and they have a 5inch backspacing.

    What tire/rim setup should I run for best possible street handling? 17x8 front/17x9 rear, or 17x9 all around??

    In addition to rim size, what tire size should I add to these rims? Thank you for reading

    Look at the past threads addressing how to measure for the back spacing required for your opening. Anything stock is all too often not optimal.
