Hey guys,
Im getting ready to get some tires put on the set of aluminum rims I dug up. I found a set of 14" Indy slotted rims in my garage. I have some questions. 1)How do you measure the width? 2)How do you measure the back spacing when there is no weld line? 3)What width & back spacing do I want to run(or can I run) on a 69 coupe? 4)What brand tire would you suggest?

Thanks,
Dustin C

The width is measured from the bottom of the bead set and not from the outer edge of the rim.

You can put a straight edge across the back of the rim and measure the distance from the center of the rim to the straight edge for the back spacing.
