Car pics, thanks for the advise on wheel size.

A while back I had posted asking for advise about wheel size for my 69 Camaro and received some very helpful advise. Just wanted to say thanks and share some photos of my car.

I went with Foose Legends - 275/40x17 with 17x9s for the rear and 225/45/17 17x7s in front.

I'm thinking of lowering the car a bit. Any suggestions about how much? I just want the lip to be right at the top of the tire in the rear. Any help would be appreciated.

Enjoy the photos. Photos also show the custom paint I did.

Nice wheels - looks like perfect choices on size. Ride height looks great for a car you drive in the real world, too!

But I've got to say, those flames are some of the nicest and coolest flames I've ever seen. Nice job.

Yes you are a flamer extraordinaire. Very nice.

I agree the car needs to come down a bit. How much is up to you and what you want to live with, but I would say at least an inch all around for a driver.
