Help!!! My bullitt wheels don't fit.
So I bought a set of bullitt wheels off a coworker for 100 bucks to put on my 65 coupe. He had them from when he bought his 07 mustang brand new and he put aftermarket wheels on them and just had his stockers laying around. I put a set of 235/45R17 tires on them and bought 1 inch spacer/adapters. The wheels have a the 5.72" backspacing so with the 1" spacers it should have put them at 4.75" which from my research would have worked out. It would have been a tight fit but they should have fit. Well I put them on today and the backs fit beautifully but the front are my problem like usual. In the front it is hitting the upper control arm and the outer tie rod end. My only ideas are that I really need a 4.5" backspacing and should get some 1.25" spacers or maybe because I still have drum brakes in the front they are sticking in too much. I swear I read somewhere that one of the differences between drum and disc brakes on a 65 mustang is that the discs hub is a little wider and pushes the wheel slightly farther out. If anyone can give me some insight that would be awesome because I really want these wheels to fit because they look amazing on the car and I really don't want to put my rusty old fake cragars back on. I attached some images of how much the wheel is contacting the upper control arm and outer tie rod end.
