Along similar lines to this post.(Wes is 100% correct on the wheels) Anybody know what the going rate on either, Boyds or Budnicks are? There is a 65 in town with killer looking boyds on it, and socalrat told me about Budnick Famosas which I saw in the HotRod Chevelles mag on a 65. If they're too expensive, I may just go with some Centerline Scorpions for my lil' white 65!
Jeez, I saw a complete set of Centerlines for sale at a past Barrie flea market. The guy pulled them off his gorgeous Fathom Blue with white stripes '70 LS6. He said that the wheels and tires gave so much more traction that he was concerned about placing too much force on other driveline components (U-joints?). I don't recall, but it seemed to me they were 15X8s.
I am currently running 15" X 8.5" Convo Pros with 5.5" back spacing and Goodyear 30" X 10.5" X 15" slicks. Not sure but I was told that on my 70 Malibu the 15" X 10"'s would allow the side wall to rub on the frame. Makes sense as it is very close with 8.5" wheel. Hope this helps...MK
