Do you know what backspace and tire size? Does the car have a front subframe? The wheels I want are 17x8, it would be nice if I could fit an 8 inch wide up front and rear on my 64

I think 8" up front will be tough. I just did 178" on my rear and 177" on the front. The fronts were special ordered at 4 1/2" backspace. This is 63 wagon with a heidts clip.

No pics yet but 17x7 with a 215/45 tire. 4 5/8th backspace. I wanted 4.75" but that was the most they could do on these wheels. They touch the bump stops when I have the car jacked up but plenty of room with the car on the ground. Im guessing its because Im still running the stock upper control arms and/or an alignment issue. I haven't had the car aligned yet.

These are the wheels I went with. I have them on the car now I just need to get a pic of them on here.
