Phoenixdawg, you are trying to use OFoto to link. I do not believe you can link pictures DIRECTLY from Ofoto. Now you might be able to provide the url to the Ofoto gallery for us to click on it and view the pictures you are sharing, but to link directly to a single picture I believe they block.

Thumbs up Re: Finally got the picture of the new tire loaded, let me know what you think

Looks great ... what size are we looking at and what is the backspacing and diameter of the wheel ... any clearance issues?

Wink sizes and clearances issues

the wheels I ordered are the Vintec Dish from Billet Specialties, 17x8 4.5 bs in front, 17x9.5 5.5bs in back; tires are BF Goodrich KDWS in size 245/45 front, 275/40 rear. No clearance issues. I had some clearance issues in the back with the tail pipes, but nothing the 41/2" grinder did not take care of - now I need to go to the exhaust shop for those custom bent stainless pipes.

Question Re: Finally got the picture of the new tire loaded, let me know what you think

Can you post some more pictures with different angles. How much clearance do you have on the inside-rear? I'm especially interested on how the 9.5" 275 combo looks in the rear compared to the outer fender lip when viewed from behind the car. Also, what suspension mods are you running?

Re: Finally got the picture of the new tire loaded, let me know what you think

I will get some pics tomorrow, the car is up on stands right now but really gives a good picture of rear end clearances, especially has it relates to the rear leaf springs. Suspsnsion mods are as follows - single leaf to multi leaf rear - hotchkis 1.5" drop springs, bilstein shocks, baer serious street discs. Front hotchkis 2" drops. kyb shocks, SSBC front discs, helwig sway bar, stock upper and lower control arms, complete front end rebuild, bushings tie rods, pitman and idler arms.
