    1923 Fad T Bucket....

    Rears are Firestone Indy 12.5 x 16 (Actually front runners off the late 60's Indy 500 cars). Fronts are Firestone Strato Streak B78/13s. I'll be shelving these and fitting NOS Firestone 5.30/17 - 15 Indy rears and Coker - Firestone F560 155/15 fronts also on Ansen Sprint mags.

    Now that's a sweet look! I want to fill those wheel wells up (width-wise) on our '53 Crestline too. Looks NICE!

    Are those on the original rim width?

    Since this one came back up last week. I can't help myself.
    Butch Martin from LaPlata, MD. He's running 135 15 fronts and 315 55R 16 rear. Good luck finding them.
    I'm holding on to two sets myself and can't wait to get them on the road.
