I'm finally putting rear widebody on. Not sure if I can afford those really expensive Savini SV29c 3-piece 12" wide rear wheels on the drawing , so I need a plan B in case plan A doesn't pan out. I'm want 22" x 9" wide fronts and 22" x 10" wide Rears. I have the rear tubbed out so I want the fattest rear tires I can fit on a 10" rim but still look OK with the lower profile fronts. Here is a side view of the look/rake what I'm going for, just imagine it with Challenger style or (Black/silver ) or Viper style 22" rims from Factory Reproductions. The front is simple, but anybody know what size spacer I should order (1",1.25",1.5",1.75",2") and what size rear tires to get this look?

Mo are those 22's to scale on your rendering? If so I may need a rim upgrade soon... looks awesome.
I've discussed before about my interest in a wide body kit along with the tubs. Currently I am attached to my Crager SS 20x9's. Unfortunately they don't and wont make anything wider. So I've been looking at the Foose Legend chrome wheels. They resemble the cragers and I really like that they are chrome bead to bead...and I can always reuse the crager ss center cap (sorry Chip). I currently run Nitto DR's but would like to switch to a toyo proxy tire for street use if I can find one wide enough to fit a 20x11 rim, and then have a slick or DR set up for racing. (the close up of my wheel is not the Nitto but with the stock tire)
OK thanks guys for your comments and help. Here are a few pics of what I'm dealing with. I got 2 sizes of wheel spacers to try out. The ones mounted on the car are 2". They give the car a real factory look with the widebody and stock R/T wheels and tires. This will be my "spare/winter" set up. just for transporting the car etc..
The 1-1/2" spacers (3rd pic) are gonna give me the ability to run at leaset 1" fatter tires (1/2" on both sides). I can also get 1-3/4" spacers but havent done that yet. I really want 22" rims, so if I go with say the Factory Repoductions Challenger style 9" on the front and 10" on the rear, so here is my question, what size rear tire do you think I can get on that 22"x10" rear rim using the 1-1/2" spacer and the 2" wide body?? I want the widest I can get and safety is a must. The pic at the bottom is the look I'm going for (minus the expensive rims if I can't afford them) Those in the pic are 22" SV29.
So damn custom, I don't even need a sig!
