Wheel & Tire Chart

Post #1 by ssg66stang » Fri Dec 29, 2017 1:06 pm

Hello everyone, I hope you had a Merry Christmas.

Years ago there was a wheel/tire chart that Dodgestang created and maintained that would give you a good idea if a particular setup would work on your car. Although the data didn't always apply to every application it was a great base to work from. I have since learned that Dodgestang received some grief for the chart and it is no longer on the web. Dose anyone have the pdf chart for 1966 mustangs? I have the first page that has wheel sizes up to 15x7 but I was hoping to go a little bigger than that. Please feel free to PM me the pdf version. Thanks in advance!!!

Hi, this is an old wheel / tire chart I have for 1964 to 1966 Mustangs (Also have it for newer 1967 to 70's too) there are some wheels up to 18 inch that will fit the early V8 5 lug Mustangs the 4 lugs will be semular. So if you can find the right back spacing of 4.5 in a 15 X 8 it will fit on the rear only and a 15 X 7 with a 4.25 back space is the biggest that fits the front wheels. This is info came from an old Halibrand chart you might have look for a tire size conversion to newer current tire sizes and maybe also do a MIlimeter (MM) conversion with some brands of newer wheels. Good luck :nod:

Ford Mustang Aftermarket Tire & Wheel Sizes
Halibrand Engineering researched the Mustang wheel/tire sizing issue. For optimum results, they suggest living within these parameters for the early Mustang’s



1964 To 66 MUSTANG WHEEL/TIRE FITMENT
Wheel Size Correct Backspace Suggested Tire Size
15x6 4.000 in P215/70R15
15x7 4.250 in P225/60R15
15x8 4.500 in (rear only) P255/60R15 to P235/60R15
16x7 4.250 in P205/55R16 to P255/60R16
16x8 4.500 in (rear only) P225/50R16
17x7 4.250 in P205/50ZR17
17x8 4.500 in (rear only) P235/45ZR17
18x7 4.250 in P225/40ZR18
18x8 4.500 in (rear only) P245/40ZR18 to P265/35ZR18

Thanks bubba.

Marco, yes I did try a google search, but like I said I was only able to find the chart up to a wheel size of 15x7. I know dodgestang's original chart goes bigger than that but I have yet to be able to find that portion of the chart.

Thanks

Bubba that’s the chart for 67-68. I need the chart for 65-66 for wheel sizes larger than 15x7. I’ve tried google and all the links end up going to a page that is no longer active. I know dodgestang removed a lot of not all of his information because of some drama that was caused by someone else so finding his pdf chart that someone happens to have saved seems to be my only hope. I’m wanting to fit 17x7 wheels on my 66 Coupe. I have a CRSP disc brake conversion up front with 620 1” lowering springs and the Shelby drop; the rear has 4 mid-eye leaf springs. Does anyone have this setup? Will you please send pictures and let me know of any issues I will run into. Thanks!

Marco, thanks a ton! New wheels are definitely on the horizon for me, its just a matter of saving a bit more and deciding on which ones I truly want. Thanks again!
