Last sanity check
Thanks for all the feedback on this question - it has been interesting reading.
Right now I'm leaning toward two options (both in anthracite):
AR Torque Thrust M 17 X 7 , 4" BS, 235/50 R17 all 4 corners
AR Torque Thrust M, 17X8, 4.5" BS, 245/45 R17 all 4 corners
Based upon my research, these should be a slam dunk for fitment, although I've seen 17X7 4.25 & 17X8 4.75 suggested.
Does anyone think I should expect any rubbing problems with either of these? 1968 FB, Global west front (with 1 3/8" upper arm drop - lowered around 1"), stock rear lowered 1".
EDIT: I'm going from 205/75R14 on the front now, and the car drives very nicely - should I expect much change in bump steer, or a tendency to follow ruts in the road (paved roads - like where semits travel alot asphalt their tires tend to make ruts)?
