I bought a 67 Coupe that needs to be finished. The back tires are 15" and stick out past the fenders. I like the wide back tire look but want them under the car completly. What kind of off set rim can I go with to keep with a wide tire?

check your clearances between the springs, and the inside of the tire, may be able to change the rims to a different back set, moving the inside edge closer to the springs.

That is my plan, I'm making the garage bigger with a better set up so I can start the car project. I was just hoping someone else has done the same thing to get an comfirm my findings. This is my first restore. Thanks for the reply.
