Hi folks......

Just after some technical help HELP! SOS!

I have a 65/6 9" diff on the 67 fastback with disc brakes.

I've finally gotten around to pulling the wheel off and making some measurements to get rid of the cheese cutters and make George happy..lol

Here is what I have, can anyway tell me what size rims with offset and backspace should fit comfortably?...the car retains its original leaf spring setup.:

Any help appreciated.....

You need to take into account the specific tire, they are wider than the rim.

Some good tip on measuring up to give you some guidelines here.

damn...I was hoping it was as simple as adding the 185mm plus the 150mm

which gives you 335mm, convert that into inches and it gives you roughly 13"....so in theory, you should be able to fit a 11" wide rim comfortably...no? Get me coat .....it was worth a shot.

You can fit an 11" with a few mods. It is backspace that is the issue. 10" will go on yours no problem. As long as you get the offset correct.

These sheets will show you how to measure your car to determine maximum fatness.

On the rear forget the pic of the coilover. Your measurement would be to the leaf spring.

A plasma cutter can take care of the pesky inner arch. But I digress, you are correct.

For all those that cannot figure this post out, I had replied that it is the inner wheel arch that is measured, not the spring as the wheel arch is about an inch further out than the spring.

I had deleted the post as I realized I had nothing constructive to offer that would be listened to anyway.

I see you have other mates or contacts with eleanors and their wheels look good and fit well..perhaps ask them politely with a case of beer if you can try on their rear wheel if they have the same size diff and specs.. that might be a good way to actually trial a wheel and at least you can ask them where they got it.. theres alot of factors to take into account with what you are after.. dont forget to keep the same rolling diameter or your speedo will be out

None of the other guys have a 9" of a 65/6 on a 67/8.
But thanks for the suggestions.

Does not make any difference. Bolt pattern is still the same. George's suggestion is still valid as it will tell you what will fit & what will not.
