10" wheel '67

Does anyone have a 10" wheel in the rear on a '67 or '68? Looking to keep stock suspension, no mods other than rolling fenders. Will it fit?

Not likely without modifications. A 17x9 running 275/40's with a 5.5 backspace looks like it will fit. Check out Nick's chart:

I think if you roll your fenders you can squeeze a 10 in back.
I'm running a 17x9.5 with 275 tire, it fits with no fender roll

Any idea of the back spacing and offset?

Because knowing is half the battle.

I ran the easiest of searches and found the car I had in mind. I stand corrected, the guy has a 10.5 inch wheel. Still bigger than a 10.

17x10.5 w/ 285/40-17s on '67. Da G-Machine final results

I run a 19x10 with no issue.

I have a set of 18 x 10 (5" bs and -11 offset) with Pirelli Pzero 315/45/18 waiting to be put on, and I am pretty certain it will need to be mini tubbed to make it work. Fronts are 18 x 8 (5" bs and 14 offset) and I am also running a 4 link.

Hopefully that link will help out the OP, but he still may need to contact Paul to get the offset and backspace. I would think at least a 5" bs and a positive offset would be needed to get that to tuck without modifications besides the rolled lip.

Good luck gikort and keeps us posted.

I'm running a 10" wheel on the back of my 67. I did cut the rear axle but that was only to get my a little more outer lip on the rim. It's not necessary to do but I really wanted a deeper looking wheel. The tire is going to be the limiter on the stock suspension. I got a 295 under mine but had to roll my fenders and message the inner fender well.
