I ordered my new rims today...

Ordered my new Boyd Coddington rims today. I am hoping they will be here by the end of the week. It was a tough decision on which rim to go with. I chose these rims because I wanted to go with something a little different...

Re: I ordered my new rims today...

Looks like a winner! Those are sweet. What size are the rims and what size tires are you going to run?

The backspacing looks good with that rim/tire combo

If you get them on and decide you don't like em let me know. I'll take them off your hands for free, and I'll even pay for shipping

Re: I ordered my new rims today...

I'm glad that you were able to decide on what you wanted. I have looked at many different rims. I kinda like the coys rim but want to be sure.www.coyswheel.com

Re: I ordered my new rims today...

It is a hard decision for sure...I wanted something a little different than the TTII's which everyone seems to have these days. I like the Cragar rims too, but they dont come standard with the size and offset I was looking for. There are a lot of cool looking rims out there. I did a lot of research and looked at a lot of wheels. A good place to get some decent ideas is newstaigia wheels...their web site shows a bunch of different vendors and styles. I figured that for an extra $50 a rim, it was worth it to be a little different, but still basically on the same "style" as the old Cragar rims.

Re: I ordered my new rims today...

oh man I can't wait to see pics of your tire and wheel combo~! Can you believe it..my wife asked me yesterday if I wanted to go ahead and order the rims and I told her...uh uh..no honey not yet..I'm not ready!?!?! I need to stop being so chickens*%t and just do it!

Did you get the same backspacing for the front and the rear? Where did you order them from?

Re: I ordered my new rims today...

I got them from Newstaigia wheels...they have free shipping which was a plus, and these rims are hard to find locally, and anything locally I have to pay taxes on.

They had these in stock and after talking to them, these will fit as far as tire rim size stated above. I got the 4-1/2" backspacing in the front since I dropped the front end two inches, I wanted to keep it away from the fender lip. They are pretty knowledable there...

I've thought about a set of those, pretty good prices, just wish they were made in a 19 inch rim.

Re: I ordered my new rims today...

Here are some pics with the new rims...I am not sure if I should have went with a little taller tires in the back. I am sure I am going to get a little settling in the front still...
