    Ken,

    What suspension mods were you required to perform in order to run those rims? Thanks, Doug

    non at all:shock: the fronts are 16X7 with 4.25" back spacing I run 215/55/16 tires rear are 16X8 5.25" back spacing and can easly fit almost any size tire i currently have 225/60/16 but am going with 235/55/16 ths weekend even a 245/50/16 would work. i am changing rear ends to a 1970 A body rear so 5.25 back spacing really helps. the fronts should probably be 205/60/16 for a little more room or just a little more spring. I needed top take the bolt out of the inner fender in the middle and on big turns the do touch a little
