    Mustang torque thrust style wheels/ brakes/ 70' Charger.

    Unfortunately my 70' Charger has been sitting for a few years while I finished my degree. I'm about to start working on her again, but need some help/advice on wheels.

    Shortly before storing her away, I put 17" mustang wheels w/ 1" spacers on. I got these wheels because at the time I was considering an RMS suspension and they are recommended.

    Currently my 70' has 4 wheel drums and I'm looking to swap to disc brakes all around (researching that as well). I also am not very comfortable with running such a big spacer either, especially after seeing my cousin loose a wheel with one in his vehicle.

    Any advice on having these wheel fit safer, tire size for a full look, and disc conversions?

    My goal for the car is to eventually put a Gen III in it and modernize it a bit, I want it to be a comfortable, enjoyable ride, that is reliable for long trips with respectable gas mileage. No plans to race or anything else.

    only way to get it done would be using spacers up front and getting a wider axle housing for the rear to make up the difference... either that or go with new wheels with correct backspacing
