    Default Tire Fitment

    Hello,
    I am currently building a 72 Skylark pro touring inspired car. I came across a set of 20x9.5 rims, my question is will i be able to fit 20x9.5 in front of my car? Car is lowered 1" all around on eibach springs. Please help me out.
    Thanks,
    Gabe

    It all depends on the backspacing. You would need it to be right around 5.25" to be centered in the wheel well in the back. I don't know if that would fit up front. And what tire size would you want to put on it?

    That's the thing too I don't know backspacing rims are 3 hours from me. But I may wait after all to find some 18s.
