I am trying to decide what size of rims to buy for my 64 impala with front disc brakes. is there a difference in the ride between 13'z and 14'z? would i have to shave the calipers to make either one of them fit? lastly, do 13'z mess up the engine?

thanks in advance

yeah, 13's are always tight on a 64.

I run 13 X 7 reverse with the front disc conversion from http://www.mpbrakes.com

no problems at all..

yes, they will spin the motor faster than some 175/75/14's...

my car, with the 3.08 rear gear and 2 speed powerglide, revs at 2900 doing 60MPH...

I have pics of the install on my website..
