I was planning to buy a set of Forgestar F14 wheels, in 19x9 and 20x11, for my 70 Elco. 19's have the best tire selection but wheel manufacturers have done a poor job in offering reasonably-priced 19" wheels. Those Forgestars cost around $1750/set, now. The 18x9.5 and 19x11 CCW's on my Z06 cost over $4K.

What wheels did you go with, Chad?

I hear ya itís crazy! I got Bonspeed crokus x. Was just under 4k, but if I went with 9.5 as opposed to 9 or 10 for the rears, the price would have shot right up for the half size. I was good ha ha!

Has been a while. No cars in the garage. Heck, only thing I service anymore is my '86 Gravely tractor. Sold my '69 7 years ago, often wish I still had it, but can tell you, it would've morphed back into a cruiser and less than a high HP hotrod if it was still here, much along the lines of what you've done.
