Post Correct '51 Ford Wheel Offsets

Wondering if any of you knew the correct size / offsets for '51 ford wheels. The guy who owned it last put new wheels / tires on it, but the rears now ride dangerously close to the fenders, to the point where the tire sidewalls are getting chewed while cornering, suggesting the wheels are too wide / incorrect offset -- need to get this solved before I have a blowout. As always, your help's appreciated!

Your problem may not be wheel offset but simply tire size. Go down a numerical (235 to 225 or 215) and maybe up series (60 to 70 or 75), this may give you the clearance you need to avoid the chewed up whitewall blues!
