currently have Mopar rallies on the front of my ‘73 ‘Cuda with P215/65/15 T/As. I want to run Keystone Klassic wheels, however, you seem to have no choice in backspacing if ordering from jegs or summit or any other normal places. I want 15x6” on the front with the same tire size, but these wheels only come with a 3 inch backspace and a -3 mm offset. These are very expensive wheels and I don’t want to spend the money and then have them not look good. I’m just not sure that’s a good backspace for look I want… But again you have no choice. If you want this wheel, you have to buy what they offer. Does anyone have any thoughts on how this would look? I prefer to have everything tucked up inside the wheel well (as it currently is) instead of out, flush with it…

DustyDave, I measured a 14x5.5 rallye wheel and it has 3.75" backspacing and 12mm negative offset. I also measured a 15x7 cop wheel and it has 4.375" backspacing and about a 10mm negative offset. So the wheels you're looking at are going to sit out closer to the fender lip then a typical stock mopar wheel. The good thing is the wheels you're looking at should have plenty of clearance between suspension components. I have others I can measure, but I'd rather not remove them from the cars.
