    So what is a good look for steel wheels on a 35 ford. I want to see what looks better with rubber against different sizes. I want white wall and old school look. 14" 15" 16"? just want to see what people have and pics please. Im thinking about dropping mine just by reverse shackles.

    Here is mine again with 750's on the back. I had a flat out in the middle of BFE and had to unbolt the fender brace to get the sob off as the suspension didn't drop it out of the fender far enough with a screw jack. Ended my love affair with 750's.
    To each his own, its just personal taste. IMG_2334.JPG
