Rushforth Fuels or Livewire????

I am still on the fence in regards to wheel choice,,, I have narrowed it down to the Rushforth Fuels or Livewires (w/o hardware). I am pretty sure I am going the 17/18" combo.


Suspension wise I have the Hotchkis 1.5" rear and 2" front lowering parts on the way...

Any input from the Brotherhood?

Go with Fuel, most R/F seem to be Livewires~

I went with the 18" Livewires and loved them! Had same suspension setup. No rubbing and nothing but compliments everywhere the car has gone.

Re: Rushforth Fuels or Livewire????

Thanks for that pic with both sets. I always wondered what the fuels would look like but Wagner's put some on his orange car and since he is less than an hour away we went with the livewires.... Honeslty don't think you can go wrong with anything from Rushforth!

Good luck with the decision!

18x10 5.625bs on the rear with a 285-40-18. Needless to say the rear wheel tubs have been widened and I'm going to run a 1.25" narrower rearend and use a wheel spacer to put everything exactly where I want it. 18x8 4.75bs up front with a 245-40-18. We'll see several months down the road if they'll fit

I am guessing from that backspacing that Jon from Driverzinc set you up...no?
I run that exact same setup on my '69 Z/28...stock 12-bolt and no tubs though.

I do love the Fuel's...Jason told me to hold off on wheels when I complained the spokes on the Concept were too fat for my tastes...that he was coming out with a new-design 5-spoke he just knew I'd love.

Imagine his surprise when I ordered a set of Superspokes..me too,lol.
