1973 Q code Mach 1 blue glow with argent stripes, 351C-4V, 4 speed
It is time for new tires and wheels on my 73 Mach 1. I currently have the 14 inch forged aluminum wheels and will be changing to Magnum 500 wheels. After doing some research it looks like P/235-60-R15 tires will offer nearly the same diameter as the current F70-14 tires so speedometer accuracy impact will be minimal. I am struggling with wheel size - 15X7 or 15X8? I wish to have the same size tire front to back. I have read many articles from 71-73 owners indicating that 15x8 wheels are the way to go but I don't want any suspension interference. Does anyone have the 15x8 wheel size up front? This car will be an occasional driver only - no hard driving or racing.
