DAMN! That looks BADASS!  2thumbs 2thumbs 2thumbs 2thumbs 2thumbs 2thumbs 2thumbs

Where did you order those rims with customized backspace?

I have this rims -> Wheel, Chrysler O.E. Style, Steel, Black, 15 in. x 10 in., 5 x 4.5 in. Bolt Circle, 5.5 in. Backspace Summit Nr: WVI-63-5012052
Wrapped in this tyres -> 295/50/R15   Summit Nr: BFG-16225

And I think I have this problem you mentioned with the 5.5 in backspace that the tyres touching the inner fender when 2 persons in the back of the car.... :-(

On the front I am running on 15x7 rims with 245/60/15 but there is too much space to the outer fender.

I definitely need to go with 15x8 rims on the front as you do but maybe with juuust a little different backspace to come closer to the outer fender....

What do you think about 3" backspace?

Regards

Roland
Hey Roland, I ordered the custom backspacing wheels through Summit as well. You just have to do the order over the phone and they'll submit the custom order to Wheel Vintiques for those wheels. If you want to do both front and rear as custom backspacing I would find another company than Wheel Vintiques tho in my opinion. My powdercoater recommended Pete Paulsen enterprises and I've also heard of people getting them through Stockton Wheel. Especially if you're considering custom backspacing for the front as well. You may be able to find better places to do custom steel wheels that are local to you which would make things easier. 

I'd recommend measuring for your specific application in the front. On the front 15x8s I have a 4" bs which is half an inch further toward the outside fender than the standard centered offset of 4.5". 3" would probably be too far but I think but it may be worth measuring on yours to see if it would be achievable

Hi there, so with all this great info, I am still not getting it I guess

Hello     

Has anyone heard of "Vision Wheels" they sell on ebay?

I actually like the style, and they are really cheap (which is what I need right now)


https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-New-18-Wheels-Rims-Dodge-Charger-Coronet-Lexus-RX-350-F-RX450H-AWD-39008-/272846051957?vxp=mtr&hash=item3f86e45a75

Or if I did 15" HE SAID "I have 15x8 with -19 or 0 offset"

https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-New-17-Wheels-Rims-Dodge-Charger-Coronet-Lexus-RX-350-F-RX450H-AWD-39004-/272845966809?vxp=mtr&hash=item3f86e30dd9

Or if I did 15" HE SAID "I have 15x8 with -19 or 0 offset"

https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-New-15-Wheels-Rims-Dodge-Charger-Coronet-Lexus-RX-350-F-RX450H-AWD-39003-/272845954592?vxp=mtr&hash=item3f86e2de20
hE HAS 15X7 and 15X8
Or if I did 15" HE SAID "I have 15x8 with -19 or 0 offset"

These cars are old enough now I can't get any meaningful advise from the wheel sellers. I think they just import and flip.

I would like to go with a more or less STOCK suspension but I do like the look of bigger wheels. However, with the right wider tires I think 15" is OK as well

Anyone of you members maybe work at a tire shop to let me know if any of the above stuff is going to work on the 69?

I don't think I want to go all the way to 14" because if I put discs in the front, I understand they want you to have at least a 15" rim

A little more info came....

I was told by the wheel seller that in 15" they had in a 7" wide either a -7 offset, OR a +6

And I was told on the 15" at 8" wide they have 0 (zero) off set OR a -19

I think she was implying the  +5 in the front and a -19 in the back would give it a meaner stance. But she said she wasn't sure I could go 8" wide in the back without issues

On the old Weld wheels on there now, it has p295/50 R15 105S M+S that look amazing on the back and P22560R 15 on the front, IF that even matters as tires are really old bit look like they fit the car well

Questions are

With a stock set up (except front disc brakes), can a 8" wide rim fit the back of a charger with NO mods done

and

Will these offsets work, with the listed options of offsets?

If no one knows, but can refer me to someone that does, much appreciated

These are the rims.....the black ones are 18 only, the more gray torq type are the 15 (they also make 17 and 18's in those)

If you read any part of this thread before asking.... Tongue

A Charger has huge wheel wells. An 8" wheel is not a problem. I like getting matching wheels so I get all 4 in 8" but staggered 7" front and 8" rear is also fairly common. Of your choices, get 0 offset. Your front tires should easily fit with either width as long as you keep the offset near 0.

That rear tire on your car is fairly large. I'd almost bet the wheel that it is on is 9" or 10" wide. *Usually* a 275 is about the maximum recommended for an 8" wheel and you're wider than that. With a tire that big you need to be very careful with the spacing as it's probably fitting tight everywhere (although I have seen 325s fit in back with no modification). Again, 0 offset is likely the best route. On a 10" wheel this will be 5.5" backspacing (5" backspacing on 9" wheel). I'd measure the ones that are already on the car to be sure.

Better to be a "has been", than a "never was"

Hi all, first off thanks to everyone who has contributed to this thread! It was a great resource when I was looking into my wheel and tire setup and researching different options. Just installed my wheels and tires recently so I’m excited to be able to post my setup for posterity and hopefully help someone in the process!

I wanted to go for a poser stock-car look so I went with some Wheel Vintiques 63 series steelies mounted on ‘Goodyear Radial T/As’  Wink (put Goodyear tire stickers on the blackwall side of some BFGs). Very happy w/ the look overall and fitment of the setup but not very happy with Wheel Vintiques – I’ll get to that in a sec.

But first, the specs!
Front: 15x8 (4" bs) on 245/60/15
Rear: 15x10 (5.25" bs) on 295/50/15

I ordered custom backspacing for the rear since the standard backspacing of 5.5” put the tires too far inward so it was rubbing on the inside fender. 5.25” centers it just perfectly for mine and I have no rubbing issues front or rear, even with 3 people in the car.

As far as Wheel Vintiques, I wasn’t pleased with the custom backspacing wait time and the finish of the wheels. When I put in the custom backspacing order I was quoted 4-6 weeks and it took 8. The finish on the custom order wheels did not match the standard backspacing wheels I got for the front and the finish on the wheel edges was damaged pretty badly. Since I didn’t want to deal with waiting another 8 weeks for replacements I just took them to a local powdercoater and had them repowdercoated to match the fronts. Came out looking great but in hindsight I would’ve pursued buying them through Pete Paulsen Motorsports (recommended by the powdercoater) or Stockton Wheel.

Onto the pictures!

 








I think you about NAILED IT !

Great looking Charger, absolutely fantastic stance.
