wheel options with volare front clip and rear axle

Hi guys

i was wondering which wheels people are running with volare front clip, At the minute i have crager deep dish jobbies to get the wheels to line up with the arches, im finding it really hard to find some steels to do the same job

am i going to need to get some spaces made up?
or can anyone recommend steel wheels with a big enough offset to not look lost in the arch

btw the truck is a 55

thanks
dale

Mine is a 1956 F100 with a Volare front clip and dropped spindels from Fatman Eng.I have 15 x 7 with 4 inch backspace steel wheels from Early Wheel Co on the front with P215/70R15 W/W tires. Seems to look right to me. Rears are 15 x 8 with 4 1/2 back space and the tires are P235/70R15 W/W.

Picture is in my album about the steering column.

ferguson777 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I'm running a Mustang rear end with my Volare IFS. I'm using stock 2005 Dodge Magnum 17" X 7" wheels (with screw on salt flat discs).

I forget what the back spacing is (you should be able to find it on the web) but because the Dodge Magnum is rear wheel drive, it has fairly neutral offset.
