    When I was a kid in Fremont, Ca in the mid 60's this would have been the baddest car on the streets. Awesome!

    245/60R15 (26.3" tall) front and 255/70R15 (29" tall) on the rear. Fronts clear no problem, though I did have the heat and bend the steering arms and would have been better off going with 225/65R15's, and I have about 1.25" clearance inside and .75" clearance outside on the rear.

    My swap meet special wheels are E-T spokes that someone carefully polished off all the dark centers on. They are 15"x8.5" rear with 10"x15"x30" Hurst slicks, and 5.5"x14" fronts, with 185-75-14 tires.

    Never figured my ride was H.A.M.B. worthy so never posted any pictures but running M&S 165R15 86S on the front and MT Sportsman Pro 33x19.50 15LT on the rear.

    Maybe not what is cool right now but it's the look I've always liked.
