Cant reember tire sizes right now.
I can barely put a q-tip between my front tires and my fender lip.
They are even closer now that I have the car aligned. It does not rub as far as dips/bumps but off camber drieway entries it rubs a bit. But it is worth it!!!!

Can you tell me what wheels those are and who makes them and check your tires sizes and tell me what they are front and back. Is the back lowered? Can you tell me the backspacing on the 17x7 and the backspacing on the 17x8? Thanks

Default Info

The Wheels are available from Bruce at 951-686-3929 (riverside ca) He has all the specs on my car, (back spacing etc) the Springs in the back are made to lower the car 2 inches. The front 620 springs have a full coil cut out, the tires are 245/45/17 in rear 215/45/17 in the front.

The center caps are from Scott Drake I think? I dont love them.....they look good for now. I am going to have some flat caps cut from a flow-jet. You cant run dust caps with the thin caps but I dont care.

Tell Bruce Oakley sent you, he has alot of good info, parts and knowledge. He is a good guy.

Sorry it took so long to respond we were at Rage at the River Off road race! 4th place woo-hoo!!

Did you roll all of the fender lips to make those tires fit? When you pull into the driveway what does the front tire rub on? Thanks

My 65 FSTBK has 15x7 seven wheels 205-70 15's on the front , 225-60- 15's on the , I want to raise the ear end up two at least 2 inches. I like the look of the car being higher in the front, but the rear needs to come up at least two inches ,hows the best way to do that.

I really like the look of these chrome ones. They cut off some weight compared the cragars too. The cragars are steel and these are aluminum.

Legend 5s - around 20lbs
Cragars - 26lbs a piece
