tire clearance wheel adapting.

Hey this is Phil i need to know what is the rim fitment on a 1975 Ranchero6.6L 500 Series.


I am going to order special front shocks for my ranchero that will raise the front end height about by 1 inches max. If this works out correct i should be able to not have to worry about clearance issues. I am working toward getting a aggressive look before painting it I want my ranchero to be solid black. I also would like to purchase some used 15- 17's on there if i can. I want to put the roar back into the 75 ranchero.
I am working on trying to get bulky rims in the back and make it narrow in the front.

If i cannot find better rims i could just have the center peaces repainted because i hate the ugly black center peace on my rims. I want that all chrome/stainless steel look.

What i have been looking at since Dayton's would look weird on them because of the size is

I want these in chrome or black..

I also Think if i could adapt these i could throw some 03-08 expedition stock rims on there

I like the profile of these and they stand out perfect like i want them.

What kind of shocks raise the ride height, spring overload are the only ones I've seen do this to the rear only.
