Default Wheel/Tire Reference

We seem to have enough members here now that I have often wondered about the style/size/offset of the wheels and tires on your car. Scott and I talked about starting this thread and breaking it down by:

Make/year/body (A,F,G, etc)

Wheel manufacterer

Size/offset: Front-Rear

Stock/Mini Tubbed/Narrowed springs

This database should be helpful to us all and those seeking info.

REARS: 18"x10" with 5.5" back, but my new Moser 9" is narrowed 1" overall. So make sure you add in the extra .5 per side.
FRONTS: 18"x8" with......I forgot! Wait here. I'll go measure.

55 Chevrolet, mini tubbed

Rear - 20 X 11 iForged 5.75" BS w/ 305/40's
Front - 18 x 8 iForged 4.5" BS w/ 245/40's

I wish somebody made a bigger 20" tire that was still atleast 29" tall, I have enough room for a 14" wide tire, but need to fill the big wheel wells of a 55.

I helped put together a Wheel & Tire database over at Team Chevelle. Feel free to look it over and modify it to your needs.
