How to post in classifieds

Can someone please tell me how to post tires and wheels (68-69) in the classified section? I have looked and cannot find a point to post.

Thanks!

NEVER EVER let loose of original Ford parts. The re-pops are not anywhere near the quality of the factory bumpers. Have your original straightened and rechromed. It is money very well invested.

I'm assuming you are using a Sanden (or Sanden style) compressor? If so, the mounting brackets for the compressor shouldn't be that much different between the manufacturers.
