Help picking out mag 500 wheel and tire package.

Recommended Posts

Its time for new tires on my 73 mustang.  Apparently, between the time I put the tires on and now, these sizes stopped being popular.  Nobody in town carries my sizes.  They're a special order and its gonna run me north of $950 for 4 new tires.

I figured that was my sign to start thinking about getting a different set of rims and switch to a more popular size.  I'm looking at the magnum 500 wheel and tire sets available online.

The sets at CJpony are 15x7 and 15x8 with 4.25" and 4.50" backspacing. And 16x8 sets with 4.5" backspacing.  I presume the sets they sell will install on a 73 mustang without using spacers and fit like they're supposed to?

They have a note that these 15" rims may not clear if you want to swap your rear brakes to discs.  I would like to do rear discs at some point in the future.  How bad is the 15x8 and 16x8 rear wheels with 4.5" backspacing likely to hurt me when I start looking at rear disc brakes?
