So what is the correct back spacing for our early Mustangs? Check out the chart for the most popular sizes of wheels and tires. Use this chart for a rule of thumb, not as fact. Tire shapes and the condition of your Mustang can also effect tire clearance. And the condition and type of your suspension will also have an effect on tire rub. A worn out stock suspension that has a lot of travel and bounce will be a lot more likely to rub than a new firm suspension system that is designed not to let the body of the car roll. The Mustangs Plus catalog has over 50 different Spring and Handling Kits for you to choose from so there is one that's right for your Mustang, how you drive, and which wheel an tire you want to run.

So remember. Tuck them in and sleep tight!

What a difference a set of 17" tires and wheels can make! My nephew, Greg Bramlett, and his wife, Kim, just bought this 1964½ convertible, complete with 1966 spinner hub caps. So something had to be done. By simply bolting on a cool set of wheels and tires they now have the best of both worlds! A stock convertible Mustang that's also a neat Restomod!
