  5. Looks good! Always looking for wheel/tire ideas for my Victoria. It's a ways off, but got to plan, you know.

  10. Not throwing stones at the "before" (since I restore Hals) but the big 'n little steelies have a nice honest hot rod look.

    Can't go wrong either way... but I have a soft spot for Halibrands.

    What a great change. You took it from a 60s drag strip look, to a much cooler (IMO) 40s dry lake look. I love it.

    I'll probably catch some shit for this, but polished Halibrands can look a little too "street roddy" on some cars to me.

    Looks great! Car sits really good.
    Thanks for posting your new wheel/tire sizes. How tall are the new 145's on front?

    I like this look more. Maybe just the taller tire would have been enough. To each his own though, it still is killer .

    Sorry..... Kinda looks like you mounted 'temp' wheels/tires to roll it around while you're waiting for your Halibrands to show up. Nice car tho.....
     
  22. Nice, the steelies look much better. IMO

  23. The stance has been greatly improved with the addition of the taller rear tires and the steel wheels look more traditional IMHO. HRP
