Want to know largest rear wheel/tires that will fit inside '65 Falcon fenderwell
Hello. I am trying to find out what the largest size wheel tire configuration that will still tuck under my 1965 Falcon rear wheel wells. My car currently has 14” x 6” wheels. I’d like to go up in size to 15” wheels, and want to know if I can fit a 60 series tire up under the wheel wells. I really don’t want to have to use offset and have the tires stick outside of the wells. Does anyone know what size tires and wheels will work for me? I think I can fit a 15×7 wheel according to the backspacing I have seen. Curious if anyone know the largest tire size that will work for what I want?
Looks like maybe: 225/60R15 or 235/60R15 should work. Does anyone know for sure, or know of a site that could tell me about maximum fitment of tire/wheel combinations? Thanks in advance for your help. I am thinking of keeping the old school look of the 60’s period by putting Cragar SS wheels on my Falcon, and running 15” wheels on the back and keeping the 14” wheels on the front. Open to comments also. Thanks, Bernie Can’t get enough of this Hub Garage – its my latest addiction!
