    Howdy everyone, I have recently been looking at a new set of rims at the moment and came across Basset brand steelies that fetch my eye in looks, and price. Most of their wheels are less than $100, and have plenty of options regarding backspace, and have a sick red line going around it that...

    Hello, I have a 1967 El Camino that currently sit on 15” rally wheels and I believe my tire diameter is 26” total. Last year I dropped the front and back of the car by 2” using UMI Performance’s lowering kit. (Drop springs) The car is drivable, but I have major rubbing issues on tight turns...

  8. Wheels & Tires
    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...

    I have a 65 elcamino, stock drum brakes all around. I am converting the front to power disc and tubular upper/lower control arms, but the rear will remain stock drums. I am having some rally wheels made with custom backspacing for the rear so i can fit as much tire back there as possible. I...

    Going to paint these wheels. My dad owns a powder coating shop so it will be most convenient to get them painted there. However, it will only be one color. I'm thinking a silver color, since he has a nice lot of silvers to choose from. What do you guys think?
