Just wanting to sanity check this wheel/tire combo from Tirerack.com. Will this combo bolt right up to my '82 Elko without any spacers or other modifications?

I'd go at least 235 size tires if it were me.

It's very strange.
They came included on my American Racing Outlaw I's that I just got.
Unless, they have different sizes for different cars, making it necessary to choose the correct model number of cap.

I think they:
1) have different centercap design options?
2) make more money by selling all the little extras they can

You need to address the cars positive cambering on compression issue before putting those kind of tires on it. The sidewalls are extremely stiff, during a fast stop the inner side of the front tires will lift off the pavement, giving the car less stopping power..

Frankly I would get the first or third generation Rally Wheels, the ones with the spokes are my favorite. They are 15 x 7 with 4.25 back space..

Every time I had a car with vibration at speed issues, the only thing that worked was removing the aftermarket wheels and putting factory Rally or standard wheels back on the c.
