i have a 73 350 Nova, and i dont have the owners manual. i was wondering what the offset was, what size rims can be put on, and what is the widest tire that you can put in the back? i was thinking of putting on black rims with a chrome lip, probably 15's in the front and 17's in the back. i was wondering what other people had, where they got them and if they had any pictures. thanks for any help or information.

1972 Chevrolet Nova

This information is assuming the back is identical to a 72. The max you can fit is a 275/60 - 15 on a 8" wheel with 5.5" backspacing. To do this, the inner lip will need to be rolled and you still may run into a problem. I had to "persuade" my driver quarter with a hydraulic ram to gain another 1/8" - passenger side was o.k. There are some pictures of mine in the gallery. Clay
