Tire Sizes and Suspension

Vette: 1974
Tires: 17x?
Suspension total rebuild.

From what I have been told my 74 will take 17 tall but how wide a tire can I run without rubbing with stock suspension?

Additionally this fall I would like to rebuild the front, and rear suspension on my Vette. Who makes a great kits, for a decent price, or are they all very competitive?

This is my first post, so I am looking for any suggestions.

Thanks
Jayme

You can go 17,18,19,20 x 9.5 for a good fit with 5" back spacing all the way around. The diameter has nothing to do with how well they will fit.

Contact Dave or Lynn at www.hvydeez.com for good advice and some nice wheel and tire packages.
