1967 Wide Oval Wheels - Back Spacing

#1

Post by Red1967 » 02 Mar 2018, 16:55

Hello
On 1967 cougars/mustangs with disc brakes and wide oval tires, the steel stamped wheel was 14X6". What was the backspacing on these wheels? 3.5", 3.75" or 4"? The hub bore center was ~2 3/8 to 2 7/16.
Thank you.
Mike

I know in 69, the same styled steel wheel had a back spacing of exactly
4". Hope this helps.
