Re: Comments/criticism on my plans for new wheels and tires
Thanks to EVERYONE for the pics and info.....I am very much tempted to buy from Coker the 15 x 8 Chevrolet ralleys, and the 255/60 R15 BF Goodrich tires BECAUSE they have a a couple of specials going on....if I buy tires and wheels from them, they mount and balance them free AND they also have free shipping for orders that exceed $99. This would be some pretty big savings, though I haven't called to verify that I can have BOTH specials. I kinda hesitate because.....at OPGI, they specify a backspace of 4.25 for the 66 Chevelle, and I'm kinda relying on that as the best fit. At Coker, they have the 15 x 8 ralleys, in 4 inch and 4.5 inch, but not 4.25 inch. A few weeks ago, I borrowed a tire from the rear of my son's 69 El Camino (275/60 R15) and it fit, though I forgot to check the backspace. The front is my main cause for hesitation. I would be less hesitant if Coker had the ralleys in 4.25 backspace. I plan to call tomorrow and talk to a live person to see if they can share some info. Thanks again to everyone for the good information, and chime in again if you think of something else. The Coker special runs through Sunday, so I still have a couple of days to mull things over.
