    Default rim clearance on fender skirts for 61 Impala

    Just bought me a 61 Impala bubble top and want to buy skirts for it. The car has disk brakes in front and stock rear end with drum brakes in rear. My friend has a set of clean 13X7 72 spoke Daytons that he will give me a deal on. My question is will they rub with the skirts and stock rear end?? Im hoping I dont have to get 13X5.5's for the back. Thanks

    The best option is to shorten the rear end. However, sometimes you can get away with shaving the skirt hardware and the wheel well opening lip when running daytons or zenith ...as long as they are real

    Will 13x7 daytons fit on a 61 with skirts and bags or do I have to shorten?

    Get an adjustable panhard bar trim lower part of skirts and should be fine
