    I've got astros on my 62, standard depth not the offset. No problems with the skirts or drums at all. I'm running 215/70 tires...oh yeah...have to have 15's

    now my car isn't bagged but is lowered a little.

    Hope this helps...

    after all this work on the caddy .... think the starter went out ......immagine that. Ohh and all of the parts store books only go back to 65. .....after a bunch of phone calls , I think we will have one this friday am. But .. who knows if that is even the problem, all I know is he drove the car around back of the house to put new wheels on and ... new motor mount ... wont start now. ....U have no idea how aggrivating this is. And to top that all off now I have a bitchy husband to deal with. But as far as I know he is gonna take this friday off work to try to make this happen, but anyways , the wheels and tires look nice on the car , just wish we could have gotten the air ride done for the show , but I think that is WAY to much of an undertaking to even consider at this late point.
