After a bunch of hours of searching online Wheel & Tire calculators along with measuring every possible dimension on my car, I have found what I believe is the perfect tire and wheel combo for a 1972 Vega...
This is gonna be a Motion clone, so I wanted a tire & wheel that fit and not hang outside the wheel opening (I know the original Motion car had fat tires that hung out, but this is 2016)
Rear end is a 12 bolt that is factory Vega width - 49.25" (inside of tire is tight - about 3/8" but should not rub the factory brace)
Front suspension is AJE upper & lower control arms with S-10 Spindles...nothing rubs on fender or inner wheelhouse - I can get my hand behind the front tire at the lock to lock positions LH and RH..
All 4 tires are BFG P215/60R14 Radial TA and wheels are Torque Thrust D - #ARE-1054661 - 14" x 6" (Summit Racing)
Gimme a call if you wanna discuss...Scott Gaulter -515-314-70 one five cell...
Photo is mock up only...no engine with chopped front coils...rear control arms also need adjustment to bring rear axle forward (Spohn control arms)
