Remember those will affect offset.

I agree with 65coupei6, 2-inch additional offset will put the wheels way out beyond the wheel openings.

You have two options other than adapters:

1. Change out the front hubs/backing plates/brakes/drums to V8. Check to see if the spindles on the 69 are the same between the 4-lug and 5-lug, if not they will have to be switched out also. You would also have to change out the rear axle to an 8-inch.

2. Have a machine shop redrill the front hubs, rear axles, and drums to 5-lug.

Either one of these methods would allow you to install the Torque Thrust D wheels to your 69 without worrying about clearances.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the replies ! Not much options for 4 lugs these days . I wanted to get the Mag 400 wheels but did not want too buy 15" tires also ! I have a set of 4 lug 14" wheels but they are uni-lug or metric . The bolt holes are a little burgered up from not a pre-drilled washer hole too set on a set bolt pattern
