I'm going to be going to a swap meet in a couple of weeks to look for some new tires and rims for my '73 Ford Maverick. I just have to get rid of the stock granny tires on their now. I only want to go with a 15" rim and 60 series tire. How wide of a tire can I put on the front and rear? Will an 8" wide rim fit on the rear? What kind of back spacing would I need?

Welcome to M&M Wes!

I run a 225/60/15 in the front and a 255/60/15 in the rear. I have American Racing Torq Thrust 15x7 wheels with stock backspacing. I think it is 4.5" but you might want to check with American racing.

You can definitely fit a 15x8 in the rear. I have 275/50/15 drag radials I run in the rear. But since I don't have the stock rear (mine is wider) I can't help you out with backspacing there.
