    The idea is simple: Post a pic, or two of your Hot Rod and tell us the wheel size(s) & width(s) and the tire size(s) & brand(s) (and maybe the overall diameter) you´re sporting.


    This could be a very helpfull thread for everyone searching for the right wheel and tire combo for his project! You can compare different combinations others drive around and can decide which one you like the most!

    This thread can save you a lot of time chasing the perfect stance and it may even save you a lot of cash by bewaring you of wrong buys!


    So, do the HAMB and its members a favor and post your little secret :D

    Thank you so very much,
    Florian.

  6. I would be interested in seeing a picture of a 285/70r15 BFG/Coker radial on an 8" and/or 10" wheel, if anyone has that set-up?

    That's what I am pondering in the rear of my '60 above...hard to put any power down (at any speed) with the 500" Caddy...
