They look killer, enjoy that car!
Nice! Leave work early, crack open an ice cold beer and put those bad boys on!!!
Those will change the looks of that car for sure. I love wide whites
Subscribed. I want to see them on the car....
quit teasing us and put them on already..
stupid work,,,gets in the way of everything.
C'mon already! Lets see em'
that is a beautiful car, wheels aint bad either!
Nice choice of wheels and tires.
Can't wait to see those wheels and tires on your car!
Bolt them MOFO's on!!
Patiently waiting! HRP
Sorry for the wait guys, but i had to go visit one of my best friend's mother in the hospital. I am very happy how the wheel and tires turned out. I still need to lower the car a little more. I think it needs about 1" more in the back and about a 1-1/2" in the front. I guess its time for fatman spindles. Anyways, her are the pics.......
Also ready for my spider caps to get here!
Thanks for all the compliments........
Looks great. Suggestion get some front chrome grease caps. But I bet you were all ready on it ! Lol
Those wheels made a huge difference. Looks great! Now u just need a drop! : )
Lotta mo betta
Totally different car now. Looks great!
Just needs an alititude adjustment.....Very pretty.
You have a beautiful car, and the new wheels and tire only add to the beauty.
Looks great! I like its ride height, at least from the pix.
Yep, it definitely needs to be lowered some more. It has a 3" block in the rear now and 2 coils cut off the front springs. Are the fatman dropped spindles hard to install? I have never tackled king pins before. Also, can i go to a 4" block in the rear without any problems? I do not want to butcher this car, but i do want to go as low as i can............
car looks great with the new wheels enjoy
looks great! I wonder if you unbolted the rear off the springs and placed stands under the rear springs if you could raise the rear to your liking and see if all is clear then measure the distance for the blocks and just make them? or buy what you need? just thinkin out loud? there is lots of post here about the drop spindles that others have done with out difficulty...
Whole different car now. Looks bitchin'.
Looking pretty sporty! Gary
That looks great - I thought you were going for too wide a whitewall with 3 1/4", but boy, was I wrong - they look great.
A bit of lowering and your spiders and she's sweet.
Money well spent..looks great.
Car looks great! I agree chrome grease caps or spider caps would be cool!
The car does look good and I am a big fan of wide white walls,,but I'm gonna go against the grain,,the car had a sinister look with the black walls and small caps,,I just thought it was plain bitch and understated in it's previous look.
Maybe you can swap them out every now and then. HRP
