Hi guys, I want to buy some rally wheels for my 57 4 Dr. Sedan. What 15 inch size width and what backspacing are you running. Someone said not to use a rim width larger than 6 inch on the front. The car will have stock spindles with disk brakes from Tom's Classic. The rear is stock. I figured a 6 inch front and a 7 inch rear but don't know what the backspacing should be. I don't want to purchase the wrong wheels. Thanks Jim

How much does the disc brake kit move the wheels out?

In the rear, you can go with a 7" or 8" wheel with zero offset. That will just about center the tire in the wheelwell.
