1st gen 17" wheel fit...

63 with CBR lower arm kit, 2" under springs, car has 15x6 with 4-1/4" b/s now..
Anyone use a 17x7 with a 4" b/s????
I've got the rear handled already, from what I've read, seems a lot of you guys are running a 4-1/2" b/s....
I'm having a hard time matching the torq thrust II wheels in the back...
eBay has TT 2's in a 4" b/s all day long.. ZERO 4-1/2" wheels

Unsure of brake setup, look to me like a OE spindle, with a new steering arms, ill need to ask the po if he knows!!!
Agreed on the price, but its a tuff one when you can find other offsets that are way cheaper, the gen 1 suspension strikes again I guess....

The other wheels are mass produced...that's why they are cheap...these are custom welded into the hoop....pull a wheel of and take a picture write down the number on the caliper
And post them on here...we can tell you what you have

If you pull one of your front wheels off and take a picture of the disc brake setup and post it here...we can probably tell you what disc brake setup you have....this is important because if you have Chevelle disc brakes...these push out your wheels about 5/8" per side....this has a lot to do with choosing the correct bs wheels...if you do not choose the correct bs wheel they are going to rub and if they rub...you've wasted your money
Ps the number is on the caliper(the thing that holds the brake pads)

Torq thrust

Batman, My disc setup is the CPP minimum offset setup!!!
Does this still require a 4.75" back space wheel?
