    Perfect tires; sizes and tread patterns. Are those 16" Ford wheels?

    They look right to me when the quarter window is approximately square -- somewhere in the 3"-4" range.

    Yes, great help...now if some moderator had power to merge a lot of other pix from various builds & chopped 'A' threads with chop measurements into this thread,
    it could become . . .

    Bam, happy to take any of the photos above and add to the original post but not sure there were many chops I missed. The biggest thing I see is that many are chopped AND channeled, or chopped and sectioned etc. That completely changes the look, well, that and the rake/stance etc.
