Hi All,

I need HELP. My 63 Nova (6L Sedan) needs new tires and I want to change the wheels as well. I was hoping to get a set of 15"x7 (4 on 4.5) wheels (I found a few nice options) with 195/60R15 tires but I am not sure if that will fit since I have a CPP mini sub-frame kit with a 1.5" drop installed.

My car currently runs on 14" with 195/60R14 tires.

Your guidance and input will be greatly appreciated!!

I have the CPP 2" drop spindles on my 63 and I'm running 15x7 corvette rallye's with 4.5 in back space with 195/55R15 tires with minor rubbing when the wheel is cranked to one side while entering a driveway.
hope this helps.

What did you do regarding the steering box? I have the same subframe kit and have it all bolted up but im not noticing any provisions for the steering box stock or aftermarket?
