    Hi All, Just trying to find out what size I can actually fit on my 1973. I've heard a few different answers so I'm just looking for a solid lead. Currently all 4 sitting on 215/75/r14. Thanks!
  2. Wheels & Tires
    Ordered some new wheels (16x8 -12 offset) and I'm trying to figure out what size tire to get. Looking to have a nice meaty A/T tire. I'm thinking of going with Falkens or BF Goodrich, but I just need to figure out what size to get for a good looking set up.

    I have a set of 14 inch wheels with new tires and 2 Chevrolet hub caps off my 67 elky. I’m selling them because they won’t fit over my new disc brakes, but the tires have barely ever been driven on. The tires cost 300 new but I’m selling the whole set of tires/wheels for 100 because I need them...

    I've had quite a bit of work done on my 1984 El Camino, a full drive train replacement with LS3, etc. I'm having vibration that begins while driving around 75 MPH and gets fairly substantial at 90, enough that I know better than to go further. The shop has chased the problem and believes it...

    My 1979 elco is lowered 3" in front and 2" in back. Front tires rub really bad now after drop spindles. They are 225/60r15 on a 7" wide wheel with 4" backspace. I just bought 205/60r15 to replace the 225s. Will this help? What size tires are you guys running in front on your lowered elkys??

  8. Performance Modifications
    I drive a 67 el camino with a disc brake conversion. Supposedly stock style spindle dropped 2 inches. This pushes out the tires about an inch further than stock.

    I ordered some 15x8 Cragar Quick Tricks for my 68, and I'm told a few different things about them- like the offset should be 0-20 and the Cragar 15x8's aren't in that range? Anyways, Discount tire says they will fit & has ordered them for me..they say they are being custom made (takes 2...
