A friend is looking to put an 18-8(4.5 backspacing) on the front and a 20-8(with 4.25 backspacing) on a 66 nova with mini tubs in rear.Has anyone put anything like these back spaces on their car?? Just trying to save him the trouble of wheels not fitting.

If the front has a stock clip it will likely rub, especially with a 225 or wider tire. If it has an aftermarket clip it will be close.:yes:

My fronts were 17 - 7 with 4.75 BS with stock drums. It had 2" lowering springs and it rubbed if I made a sharp turn, also rubbed the stock inner fender right at the brake line. 8's will for sure rub
