blown69stang Have you mounted the rims yet? If you haven't then you can send them back and tell them that you ordered the wrong ones and haven't mounted them yet. If you have, advertise them as new or briefly used and salvage as much as you can so that you can get the right ones. Maybe put a want ad to find someone who is using the same kind of wheels to use as a spare(s) and a sell ad to just plain sell them. Hope you can make this work.

4 Jaw Chuck Kellxr7, sell your rear rims and buy the correct offset rims. Won't cost so much, this is assuming the rear will fit being that wide.

lakeroadster Wider is better for handling, so that won't be a problem.

However, tire to fender clearance probably will be a problem.

How about trading your 9 inch for another that is the right width? I suggest posting here on this website what you need, width wise, and see if you can work out a swap.

Better to get the right parts now, than rework or replace parts later.

Rear wider than frontend, troubles?

I bought a 9 inch rear for my 56 ford f100 but It is 2,1/2 inches wider than the front, how is this going to handle/trail? (I already have rims so I cant get a custom backspace & I dont have the $$$ to narrow it.
