'58 Chevy wheel question

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by El Caballo, Feb 8, 2011.

  1. I'm interested in some 15x7 wheels for my '58 Biscayne. Future plans call for lowering the car by at least one coil turn, will these wheels fit after is what I am wondering?

    Anyone on here put 15x7s under your chevy and did it give you any problems?

    My dad used 15x7 Supremes on the back of his 58. I can't remember what size tire he used and he also had cut coils (1 1/2 I think). The inner fender was the only problem. With the tire that he used, they lightly rubbed. If you want a fatter or taller tire - Problems! If you run narrower tires on the 15x7's- No Problems! Hope this helps.

    I had 15X8 in the rear and 15x5 in the front of my 58 and it sat 3" off the ground. The only problem was reduced turning radius in the front from rubbing the fenders.
    I think youll be fine if you stay with the factory offset in the front.
     
  4. Yeah, that was my concern, rubbing the fenders.
