Hi,

Want to buy new 15" wheels for a Mach 1 (1973), what size need i about the wheels (front and rear)?
Has anyone experience with size and brand?
Would like to use tires size 245/60/15.

Thankx,

This wheels works if it is the style you want. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/WVI-54-5712044/
I have this wheel and Goodrich Radial T/As 245x60x15 on the front of my 72 and it doesn't rub anywhere that I've noticed. Different manufacturers may have different section widths, wider or narrower. The rear should be an easy fit with this size. Chuck

If you have stock suspension in the front and like the way the car has a "nose up" rake or look, you can use any combo. Otherwise, what I've done, besides using 1" lowering springs in the front, is to use 14's in the front and 15's in the rear. This will level out the car a little bit without changing the springs. 245/60/14's or 15's in the front, 255/60/15's in the back. I've used 275/60/15's in the back but they look crazy wide for the car. I have the power so I can use the width but if you don't have or plan to go above 400hp, go with the 255's in the back.
