Can a 20x10 wheel fit on a 65?

Gentlemen, I just bought a 65 Impala and it is currently running 17” steelies.

I want to run staggered Ridler 695 wheels. I’d like to have an 18x8 on the front and a 20x10 on the rear.

It’s currently lowered 2”.

Can anyone tell me if this is possible without modifying the car? I don’t want to “make” them fit.

There are two 'fits' to check for the tire/wheel combo. The one while the car is rolling, and the one with it jacked up for tire/wheel replacement (putting on the spare). The rear suspension 'drops' as the car is jacked from the frame. It is possible for a tire/wheel to 'roll' but not be able to be removed.

Just for jollies, see if the current tire/wheel can be removed when the car is jacked up. I'm not saying it won't, just suggesting finding out when one doesn't need to change a flat. In the process you may see what kind of room you have to work with.

I can't answer your specific question.

This tool will answer your question. Just be sure to fully articulate the suspension to see it iit hits something such as frame or fenders on turning as well as full compression and full extension.

Yes they should fit. 20x10 with 5.5BS or 0 offset, should fit just fine, however check before you buy as every car is different.

Did you ever get these wheels? I'm looking at almost the same exact combo, possibly 18's all the way around but really like the Ridler 695's.

That looks great! Is it lowered 2" in the front with drop spindles?

What size and brand tires did you go with?

Thanks!
