I'm gonna keep the stockers for sure, but they rub when I turn so I need something else.

Where are they rubbing? Different wheels might not help.

They rub the inner fenders when turning because of the narrowed beam. It needs spacers or lower offset wheels.

Dang, that car has made the rounds. Just a year or so ago I was trying to buy it where it had been abandoned at an abandoned house. It looked like somebody restored it and just left it. It was odd.

It's narrowed 5", was already on there when I got the car. It's just a little to much with the stock wheels. I could probably throw some 135's on there and it would be fine, but what would be the fun in that? \:D/ \:D/

Does your front end have a set of drop spindles and disk brahe kit yet. If not then Some kits will kick it back out away from inner fender .

Yes it will kick it back out 1/2" on each side. I'm going to run some 15x5.5 Brm''s up front. I haven't updated it in a while but here is my build.
