    I'd like to get in touch with him. I can't tell if its two-tone or just the light playing games. And it sits just right to me.

    Thanks.

    It is white up top and MAUVE on the bottom. Don't ask how I know that.

    What size wheels and tires are those? I bet the wheels are 15" smoothies but I'm wondering about the tires? What's your guess? I'm trying to match the look...

    Looks like a 50-55 sidewall size. Badass trucks, both the white one above and yours Matt!

    Thanks for the compliment! I'm not familiar with tire size numbers so what do you mean by 50-55 sidewall? Whats that make the diameter of the tire in inches?

    usually when you see something like 255/55/15 255 is width, 55 is sidewall height, 15 is rim.

    it looks like a 50 or a 55 sidewall profile.

    They look like black wall BF goodrich radials I had on a car, a few years ago.

    It's obviously got a subframe of some kind. Can't run wheels that wide with the stock stuff. The '66 that I built had dropped beams, with a coil cut off the front springs. Nowhere near that low. Mine had 70 series tires all the way around, 235's on the front, 255's on the rear. I'm guessing 235/60/15 fronts and 255/60's on the rear. The only 50 series 15" tire would be a 295/50/15 and they are ALOT wider than the ones on this truck. BF Goodrich's anyway.

    Great looking truck either way, miss mine!

  12. the sidewall for instance a 60 profile is 60% of the width of the tread
    therefore the sidewall gets taller as the tread gets wider even though both tyres are 60 profile. hope this makes sense

    Looks bigger than a 15". Thats a ton of dish on those wheels.
     
  14. Looks like 295/50/15 meats in the rear. They do appear to be a bigger diameter wheel though, but I'm betting the black wheels and lowered stance is throwing off my eyes.

    Either way, thats a bitchin looking truck.
     
  15. Wow,

    All this over a picture I took of a truck near my house.


    Cool !!!
