falken wheel

I have found a wheel made by falken wheel. Its the torque 5, I was thinking of these for my 67 camaro but not sure if they will fit. The size is 18x8 with a bolt pattern of 120mm, offset of 35mm, and center bore of 73mm. I am looking for more of a modern style wheel. Thanks in advance for any help or other ideas.

Re: falken wheel

My thoughts on this so please bear with me..

I have 17" x 8" with 5.72" b/s Pony-car "Bullitt" wheels on my car along with 225 and 255 series tires!

I wished I would have hunted harder and found matching 50 or even 55 series so I figure 18's are going to have WAY TOO short a sidewall height to look right, imho!!

BUT that said, to each his own...

Re: falken wheel

Hey pdq67, I agree with you, I would rather have the 17" x 8" but I can only get a 8" wide wheel in the 18" . I really like this style of wheel, but dont want to spend 400-500$ like the other brands I have found. THANKS for the input!

Re: falken wheel

g,

You aren't reading me right!

I'm talking about the VERY short sidewalls here is all.

Re: falken wheel

pdq - do you have a picture of your car? I would like to see what you mean. Also, what series are the 225 and 255 (40 - 45 -?).

Thanks!
