New Wheels

Swapped out the rally 14 x 5's for a set of 17" TT II's. These are model number CL205 if anyone wants to check them out.

Fronts are 17x7, 4" BS on 235/45's. Rears are 17x8, 4.5" BS on 255/45's. No rubbing at all, although I didn't drive it with a load of passengers. Factory suspension set up.

Old 14" wheels:

Yes, Yes, I know I need to get disc brakes next! And all the ranting about Torq Thrusts--can't help it if they look so good on our cars. I decided to go with the gray centers as a throwback to the original style, plus it made my light blue car appear slightly more "sinister" than all chrome or polished.

Sorry the car pic is in the garage, we got a couple inches of snow last night...

Re: New Wheels

Looks good, I got mine last week, swapped out the rallys. Mine looks better on the ground out of the garage as well. For those that don't like TTII's click "back" .......lol.

Re: New Wheels

Thanks

A lot of guys here are running the same setup.

front 235/45/17 17x8 bs 4.75
rear 255/45/17 17x9.5 bs 5.5
2" drop in front 1.5" in rear

That ramp slopes downward, the car actually sits a little lower in the front.

ckaram,

Can't wait to see some shots of yours with the top down.

Re: New Wheels

I love it!! This post shows up right under the the other about big wheels!! Nice looking guys, they look good.

Did you paint the wheels or did you order them that way?

Rojo any rubbing with those sizes?

Re: New Wheels

Thinking of trying that same set up on my 67 when the time and money comes for wheels and tires. It's in paint prison right now.

Re: New Wheels

I think you could go 275 in the rear with the '67. Or maybe a 255/50/17.

Re: New Wheels

Great pic, rojo. I ordered the wheels this color, Joe.

Here's a shot of the passenger rear. It's dirty...

I've been shopping for wheels since summer. I think I've changed more wheels in the last 5 months than in the last 10 years trying different wheel/tire size combo's. If you want to fill the wheelwell nicely without dropping the rear look at 275/50 R17. Do a tire search on Tirerack.com http://www.tirerack.com/tires/SearchTires.jsp
50 series are harder to find but BF Goodrich, Nitto, Fusion, ect. all have something to offer.
