They do look good. How about some details, wheel and tire brands and sizes and wheel backspacing.

Thanks

The wheels are American Racing Torq Thrust II. 17 x 8 front and 18 x 9 rear. I don’t remember the offset or backspacing. I’ll look it up and post it later. The tires are Nexen N5000 Plus 275 40 18 rear and I think 245 50 17 front.

Thank. Also thank you to Tnfastbk for the advice. It helped tremendously. I went through Coy Wheels. They fit perfect.

So should I lower the nose an inch with springs or raise the back with leaf springs and add a chin spoiler? One thing is for certain I’m going to put on a silver hockey puck stripe kit.

Wheels look great! I say start with the front spoiler.

Wheels are looking sharp. Whatever you don’t lift up the rear. With those modern rims you need to keep a low stance or it makes the wheels look like stagecoach wheels!

After just watching you’re video I’ll have to agree on the lower stance. Nicely done. Cutting the springs it is! I’m loving the early hood scoop as well.
