i bought a used pair of 14x6 aluminum mag wheels to match the rear set (15x7)i have. however the backspace is not deep enough to fit inside the fender correctly. how much material can be machined off & still be safe? thanks.

I would be very careful with that. you don't want to wind up with the lug nuts contacting the brake drum/rotor before tightly securing the wheels. Check with a reputable wheel shop. They should be able to tell you.

thanks, however there is no "wheel shop" close to me. a couple "tire shops" is it. when i asked there all i got was "you must purchase the correct size wheel".
so far i have not found a 14 x 6 (slotted aluminum) wheel with a 3 1/2 inch backspace. so i guess i`ll try to find out how much can be removed from these wheels & still be safe.
