Thanks, I'll wait to see what dimensions you come up with.

Ok, dad went out and measured and they are 4 3/4" backspace. They are a multistud pattern, asked my dad to measure but i dont think he's sure what to measure. If the backspacing is ok let me know. Thanks

Hi Dave

Backspace at 4 3/4" is virtually identical to what I have on the car now, so it's down to the bolt pattern.

Ok, were not 100% sure on what we should measure so weve taken several measurements.

Measuring from one stud hole to the adjacent stud hole for each pattern we get:
3" For pattern 1, 3 1/4" For pattern 2

Measuring between alternating studs (IE start on stud one, end on stud 3) measuring center to center we get:
4 3/4" For pattern 1, 5 1/4" For pattern 2

Measuring between alternating studs, from the center of one to the outer edge of the other we get 5 1/8" or 5 5/8".

Hope this is ok?

Are you still looking for these wheels. I have a pair of centrelines off of Trace Froome's funny car. Either 16x16 or 17x16, I cant remember off the top of my head. If you are still looking I can go down to my brothers garage and get measurements and photos?

Hi Elliott

I'm afraid they appear to be as much use as anything anyone else has to offer. 17 x 16" wheels fitted with 33.5 x 17 x 16 tyres. Backspacing around 4.5 - 4.75" and as per all the others dual stud pattern with the smaller being 5 x 5" (big Ford) and the larger being 5 x 5.5" ( which I believe is big Chrysler but not so sure)
Wheels are pretty standard Centrelines and tyres are Goodyear D1 compound in pretty good nick.
