Very very nice. How did you get all that rubber inside the fenders?

Re: Finally got my new wheels mounted!!

Yes please let us know what size tires / wheels and what backspacing for both the front and rear.

Your car has a really nice stance! How much did you lower the front and rear?

Re: Finally got my new wheels mounted!!

The fronts are 18x8 and the rears are 18x10 with a 275/40. As long as you nail the backspacing in the rear you can get a 10" wheel inside the stock wheel tubs. My backspacing is a little different than most due to my 9" rear so I really dont want to post it and screw somebody up. As far as suspension I am running the DSE 2" drop leafs in the rear and DSE 2" drop springs in the front. The parts have only been on the car for a couple days so it might settle a down a little more in the front. All in all im very happy with the way things came out.

Re: Finally got my new wheels mounted!!

That is one sweet looking ride I also have a 69 with a 9". It definately is 1 to 3/4" narrower per side. What are the backspaces and front rubber size? I bet those wheels were pretty picy eh?
