A stock 39 - 40 Ford rear end is 60 inches wide.........measured wheel mounting flange to wheel mounting flange.

A .57 -58 - 59 Ford is 58 inches wide.....





My rear wheels have a 3.5 spacing to the front.......with a stock 40 rear end......your rear end is 2 inches more narrow so I would suggest a 7 inch wide rim with 4 inches of back space.......
