17x11 wheels on a 69/70

I see people with the 99-04 mustang rep Wheels in
17x10.5 on the back of 69-70 sport roof. They look like
A tight fit but I wanted to know if anyone has squeezed
17x11 on the back with NO mini tub.
If so what offset? Tire size?

I'm looking at the American racing magnum 500 wheels
In 17x9.5 up front and 17x11 out back. Custom offset. With
A fender roll and a small pull. I'm just not sure what offset
I need on the 17x11 to fit them with out a mini tub. I also
Have a sway bar I need to clear.

Thanks for any help

No you won't be able to squeeze a 17 x 11 without a mini tub. I used an american racing 17 x 11 to do a mock up when I was prepping mine. It was within 3/8" of the leaf spring, and the tire bulges out from the flange.

If you got more of a positive offset, it will hit the fender lips.

Try and mock one up and see how it fits. The 1969-70 are a little more roomy

I have 17x11 with 315/35 on my 70 Mach 1 with no mini tub. It can be done. Car isnt finished yet an d with my minimal clearances may have to make some changes. Looks good for now though...

Seems like 17x11 fits well under the rear fenders, with maybe a little help.

But I'd like to fit close to the same size up front. Get that wide grippy stance out back and have the front grip to back it up around a track!

Detroit Speed can get you a 10.5 in front, but not on a low budget I'm afraid.

They were custom made TT2's, I want to say they are 6.75" backspace.

BTW, am running the same wheels on the rear of the Cuda with 17x9's up front with 275/40 tires. Definitely a fat look.

EDIT: Meant to add, I did have to roll the rear fender lips.

Good luck getting 55Speed to post any pics. Im surprised how many issues he's had considering that looks like a pretty expensive build. 17x11 seems like too tight, asking for trouble without a tub IMO.
