Planning on a 5 lug swap on my 84 flatty... how much room do we have (stock ride hight)? I know that the offset is the same (18) on the 6 1/2 x 15 stock 4 lug wheels and the 8 x 16 front SHP 5 lug wheels... and the 215 wide tires on the stockers are almost as wide as the SHP front 225's... so will the front SHP's fit well in the front fender wells?
If yes, how wide a tire can I fit without any rubbing at stock ride hight?
PS: I know SHP fronts will fit in back on a flatty, but what about regular rear deep dish 8" wheels in the rear on a flatty? Do they stick out too much? I am willing if needed to roll inner fender lip flat (front and rear) but I don't want to stretch or flare the fenders.
