    Just wondering if 14's will fit since the car originally came with 15's. Will they clear the calipers? I doubt it

    Some factory 14s were made to clear 11" Rotors and Drums usually the wheel had special shape. For ie. my old 63 Riviera had special 15s to clear the factory 12" drums

    Also they sometimes used spacers to put the wheels out 1/4" or 3/8" to clear as well., you might have to do trial and error I'd say.

    I have 2" spacers on my 79' to clear 93 Camaro 16s spacers they work great.
