I'm using stock front spindles, and a rear end from a 1995 with a 7.5" diff. (approx.61 1/8") I'm building a mild street car. What size wheels should I use? What backspace should I use on front, and what backspace should I use on back? Should I use 9" wide all around? 16",17",18"? Any advise would help.

Thanks

I'm using stock front spindles with 17x9s in the front. I'll likely need a 5/16" spacer for the front. I'm using 17x10.5 in the rear with the 3-link setup, and no spacers should be required. I purchased the Bullitt Anthracites from FFR. You can check out their specs on FFR's webpage. The tires are 255/40s in front and 315/35s in the rear. Rear end is a 8.8" from an 88 GT. If you go with 4-link, that depth of wheel won't fit because the quad shock will get in the way.

The 95 rear is wider and will cause lots of wheel fit problems. Ditch the 7.5, keep the brakes and go to FX track. HTH, Cheers Richard.
