I am going to be selling a set of stock 14" Rally ll wheels in the near future, just in case someone is interested.

I had a set of 15 x 8 Rally II's on my 67 GTO. Every time I went down a slight incline and turned my wheel sharply, the tires would rub against the fender. I found myself driving in a way that avoided sharp turns. After a driving season, I put the 14 x 6 Rally I's back on.

bit of bad luck there it dont sound good, i custom ordered the chrome rally 2 wheels but only 15 x 7 for front with 4.5 inch back space.....i got 15 x 8 for rear with 5.5 inch back space, picking up tomorrow they just arrived....got to figure out what tyres now and hope it all fits with no rubbing....

I hear good things about Specialty Wheel. I'm planning to go that route for the wheels for my drag radials. Another advantage is that they're U.S. made.

On the front end I'd go 15X7 with 4.25" back-spacing. That's what I currently have on the Beast and they're VERY close to rubbing in turns. 15x8's would probably need at least 5" of back spacing to clear the bottom edges of the fenders, but that might make them rub somewhere else.
