      Hi guys. What do you think, does these wheels fit well to my 73' dart sport:
      Front 15x7 bs:4.25 tires: 215/50r15
      Rear 15x8 bs:4.5 tires: 275/70r15.
      I'm worried about front wheels, does these hit front fenders?

      Can you post a pic on the car?
      Thanks,
      Richard

      I think the dusters have a little bigger well kn the back so you may be good to go. My swinger can only fit a 245/60/15 in the rear on a 15x8 4.5 bs

      Here's the wheels I have on my daily driven '74 Duster.

      Vision Wheels - Model 172
      Front: 18" x 8.50" - +32 mm offset - 6.0" backspacing
      Rear: 18" x 9.50" - +38 mm offset - 6.75 backspacing

      Front Part #: 142-8865GM32
      Rear Part #: 142-8965GM38

      Cooper Zeon RS3-S Tires
      Front: 255/40R18
      Rear: 275/40R18

      Notes:
      Since it is important to note any suspension modifications to make the wheels fit, here they are.

      The front suspension is stock style but I have upgraded the sway bar, torsion bars, and strut rods. The Torsion Bars and Strut Rods are from PST. The sway bar is from Hellwig. I am also running the stock upper control arm with offset bushings. I'm running Bilstein shocks up front.

      I'm running a '69 B-body axle where I moved the spring perches in to A-Body specs. This axle is wider than A-Body pushing the rear wheels out making the rear track width to be more in-line with the front track width. I'm running Bilstein shocks out back.

      The best part of these wheels, is that they look great and I DID NOT have to run any spacers proving that 18" wheels are the way to go if you want modern tires and improved handling.

      The ride is pretty good (not too harsh at all and no vibration either) and these tires grip really well and do pretty well in the light California rain too.

        Yes. Rear leads in, lips trimmed.

        Front has lips removed and bodyworked, not just chopped. Big offset to clear my brakes.

        The welds were a 15x9 with 4.5" bs in the rear and a
        14x6 up front(cant remember the bs) I have the jegs ssr spikes on mine now, but the welds are on my friend Dave's Dart.

          Rear:275/40/18
          Rim: American Racing VN507 17x7/18x9.5 0 offset front and rear.
          Tire: Hankook Ventus

          Stock suspension, disc in front and drum in back on a 8 3/4 axle.

          Thanks to everyone that posted and especially to 72bluNblu. I've visited this thread a lot to get info on the right sizes. The rear I was holding my breath as I was lowering the jack but I still have about a 1/2" space from the leaf spring and about an inch before hitting rear fender lip.

            Looks good man!!!

            @72bluNblu is an invaluable source of information for just about anything Mopar, of course when it comes to A-Body wheel and tire combos. He helped me out too! If I ever meet him, I'm getting him a beer or two.
