Forum Suggestion For Wheels & Tires

With all the questions regarding the fit & look of different wheel & tire combinations. I thought it would be cool if there was a place where members could post a side profile pic of their car with the wheel, tire, brake & suspension particulars....So other members could get an idea of the particular look they are trying to achive

Something Like....

Stock height suspension (New coils & leafs) To include ride height dimensions
Drum brakes in rear - Disk brakes in front
Rear - Standard Ralleys - 15 X 8 with 4.5 backspace w/ 255/60-15 tires
Front - Standard Ralleys -15 X 7 with 4.25 backspace w/ 235/60-15
No Rubbing Problems

Re: Forum Suggestion For Wheels & Tires

Dumb question Rack Man....is the combo you listed what you are using? I ask because I have gone through a few combos with no success and would like to find something that works.

Thanks

Re: Forum Suggestion For Wheels & Tires

Well Steve, that was just an example....here is my actual wheel/tire combo.

69 - Plain Jane

Stock height suspension (Original coils & Mono leafs)
Drum brakes in rear - Disk brakes in front
Rear - Standard Ralleys - 15 X 8 with 4.5 backspace w/ 255/60-15 tires
Front - Standard Ralleys -15 X 7 with 4.25 backspace w/ 225/60-15

This combo works good with no rubbing at all
