    8s should go under the back, if they have enough rearspacing. I would suspect that you would need 4.5 - 5". On the front, with the narrower tire size you mention, I assume that you are going to run 6 or 7" wheels.

    We need pics!! Love that 64 body style.


    cheers

    I drove my numbers matching 69 Dart Swinger for 8 years with it's original steelies and hubcaps. I sold it dirt cheap to pay fer this heap because I like this body style better. Think I want to dress this one up a bit. I'm gonna put the sport Fury buckets and console in it because the interior is toast, and I love the look of the original console and shifter. I'm going to chuck a set of Summit Stars on it with 275's on the back and a proper max wedge style double hump scoop. I'm slowly gathering parts as I go. If anyone knows where I can get some decent original belvedere door panels let me know will ya....

    P.S. the Dart ran 12's and looked like a slant six car. That 340 is one awesome little motor!! Rev's like a chainsaw!

    The Helvedere

    I've got a 64 Belvedere 2 Door Hardtop, that I bought down in Mass last summer. Wanna put a set of wheels on it. Anyone if a 15x8 will go under the stock wheel wells? I was thinking if going 275/60-15 BFG on the back and maybe 205-215's on the front.....She's a beater but has a big block and can be driven daily....I'd post some pics if I could figure out how to get them under 128 KB!!!
Working...
