    Hi - 65 Chevelle SS. I am test mounting 215x70x14's on 14x7 'stock' wheels from Grounds Up (want wide wheel but keeping the hubcap). Wheel & tire goes on/off fine. There is approximately 1 1/2 inches in the fender. Question is the lower shock mount is slightly 'inside' the wheel and...

    Hi, I installed Wilwood disc brake on the rear of my 1969 Beaumont and I'm trying to find 15's wheels that will fit with the brake kit. According to their wheel clearance diagram I need at least 14.34'' inner diameter to fit. So I'm looking for any brand suggestion. I would really want to stay...

    Hello all. I am planning on new wheels for my 67 - possibly some modest truspokes. There are rallys on it now. I know the Torqs look good, but everyone has them at the hangouts, so I'm hoping for other options. Please post some pics.

    I haven't got the wheel tech down yet. I hope someone is able to help. I have a 1967 Chevelle that has a 1968 rear end in it. This means I loose 1.50 inches of space (the '68 rear end is wider that a factory '67). Does anyone know what is the widest wheel and backspacing needed for this...
