Looks good! Although, IMHO, I could do without the 20's. Are the fronts 18's?

What size wheel/tire are running in the rear (you said they were 20's). Might have some rubbing issues with the quarter. Have you rolled the lip?

Love the look of the 67 but I really don't think the 20's do it justice. I think it would look better with a little less wheel and little more tire. Keep in mind this is coming from a guy with 15 inch wheels on his 67 though....

I don't mind the 20's in the rear, but think they go better with 19's up front.

Or if you have 18's up front, then 19's in the rear. The 2" difference is a bit too much in my opinion, but it's a good looking car either way.

If it were me, I'd keep the current setup if you like the wheel style (which I do), and only change sizes if you were also going to change to a different style wheel.

Ed,

18" all around will give the car a better stance... I was going to go the staggered look (like you)... It took alot of convincing on the part of my builder to go the 18"-only route, but I think it worked out perfectly







here's a vid of the car driving around... gives you an idea of what it looks like on the 18's

First off, Love the car!!! its a beauty. If i do get another set of wheels. i will consider it. 18's look good

I like it, maybe an inch lower in the front for absolute perfection.

The first time I've seen RS tail and standard front grill on the same car, it's usually the other way around. Car looks awesome.

Not being a smart ***. But What look is that?
Does not have it's own thread called a "build" and does not have 75K+ into it....;)

I understand your question and I'm not trying to be a d**k either, but some people think just because they put a bigger set of wheels on their cars, then that automatically make them pro-touring. While there is no real definition for pro-touring, it doesn't mean you have to dump a ton of money into the car, as the previous poster stated.

Pro-touring cars are meant for driving in a similiar comfort of a new car. That almost always means upgraded interiors with all the creature comforts including A/C and all the good stuff.

Most importantly though and what really makes them, is suspension and braking components. That is the biggest part of the whole thing. Don't know if the OP's car has the upgraded suspension (which would be a nice start), but stock disc/drum brakes definitely are not pro-touring. I also wouldn't think a pro-touring car would have traction bars either? That is a drag racing car type of thing

I'm seeing that he said it had the pro-touring look, not that it was a full on pro-touring car. Don't know what it matters. Nice car no matter what. Really would like to get myself a 1st gen someday. Love my 81 though. Need more garage space. Means build a new garage cause I'm not letting go of anything yet. Lol
