Default Wheels and Ride Height

We are always having questions about 'what size wheels should I run" or 'I like your stance/ride height"... So, let's start a sticky where everyone lists their car/wheel setup with a brief explanation of the ride height components.

I'll start,

1965
215/55x16 Toyo Proxies
16x7 TT2's. 4" backspacing
1" drop 620 springs
Shelby Drop
Standard Rear Height springs

Thats the first time I've seen any other pictures of your car. I like it esp with the top down. What color is it? The stance looks great.

Here is mine.

15x7 4.25 backspacing
215 60 15 front and 235 60 15 rear
600 1 inch lowering front springs and GT rear springs with extended shackles.
I know most frown on the shackles. I plan on changing the springs to some that will lift the rear slightly.
The ride height is 14.25 front and 15.25 rear.

Thanks for the compliment. Color is medium saphire/firemist blue. Have to give credit to the wife for choosing it. I like your dark blue, I was going to go with the same color.

Your car looks about perfect. That picture is excellent. The 16 inch wheels look even better on your car in that picture.
