1966 Cyclone GT wheel size

Postby fordnutz » Sun Jun 10, 2018 8:11 am

Hello,

I am going to change the wheels and tires on my Cyclone GT from the stock 14x6 steel rims with wheel covers to a set of chrome Magnum 500's. My tire shop guy says to go with a 15x7 Magnum over the 14 inch version for better tire choices and a better overall look. I'm thinking of running a 235/60-15 or a 225/60-15 BFG T/A tire...Does anyone know if I will have clearance issues with the rear quarter/fender rubbing on the tire at all? Does it make a difference being a15 inch wheel over the 14 inch? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Here is a photo of my car and another of the look I would like....Wheels make all the difference!

Right off the top of my head, 14" are getting harder and harder to find, 15" are not far behind but are a lot easier to find and like the tire guy said more choices, and I am betting a bit cheaper.

See Ya,
