New wheels & tires, all new look!
Finally pulled the trigger on a modern set of wheels & tires. I’ve always been about weld wheels & the old school look with thicker rubber. I still love that look & always will, but the last couple years, I got closer & closer to going bigger wheels.
So I ordered a set of Bonspeed Crokus X wheels. Fronts are 18x8 5 3/8 BS with 235/40’s, rears are 19x10 6” BS with 275/35’s. Really happy with the new look. They’re polished hoops brushed & powdered clear centers...wheel quality is very nice!
I lowered the front another half inch. Smaller tire sidewall needed to be covered a little more to look right.
Lots of massaging in the rear to give me fair clearance. I ended up with 1/4 on the inside to the frame & 3/8 on the outside to the fender lip. Inner wheel well on passenger side was fine, but driver side was stamped different so I fillet & stretched then sealed it all back up...worked great!
