Hello all,
1972 Nova 4 door here. Any ideas what the proper backspacing is for 205/65r15 tires on 15x7 rims on the front? I want a nice stance and for nothing to hit.

Just for reference, I'm running 275/60r15’s on 15x8 with 5 1/4 backspace in the back.

Almost forgot. This is WITH drums. 4 wheel drums. If any pics that would be great.

Original rally rims are around 4.5" backspace. Maybe slightly less, like 4.25". You should be OK around there.

There is a bunch of info on this website about wheels and backspacing. Just do a search.
