    Radir makes a shorter cheater for Falcons and Chevy II's. It is a killer looking tire, and it's a new tire, so there's no fear of it coming apart. My buddy has a pair on his Falcon and they look great. I'm saving for a set for my Falcon as well.

    I'm not sure how similar in size the wheel well on the '63 is to the '64/'65 Falcon/Comet but it should give you an idea.

    The '60-'63 Falcons and Rancheros have smaller wheel wells than the '64-'65 Falcons do. I stretched the wheel well opening 3" to the front on my '63 Ranchero, and was able to fit a 215-65-15 tire on a 7" wide wheel with 4" backspacing:

    I never realized that building would be such a great background for car pictures

    Muttley, those pics say it all....that Comet is just awesome. Those are the ones I was talking about, and they ride and hook pretty good, too.

    Yeah, the idea to take some shots there just popped into my head the other day, they came out pretty good. Thanks again for the wheels, they are a perfect fit.

    Thanks, it's getting there.

    As evidenced by the above photos, it mostly depends on your level of ambition.
