    Hi i have a build thread on the small block section about my 68' GS
    but i wanted to post the Wheel choice , stance etc here as well since i havent seen any 68 ' Pro Touring builds realy.

    wheels are CCW style 19x10 with 6 Bs in the rear with 295/30 Bridgestone , 19x 8.5 in the Front with 255/35 ContiSports

    the rears are on already and they fit well without spacers/adapters. Only think needed where longer Studs (1-3/4) and Tuner Lug nuts for the wheels.

    the car still has some Spring spacers in the back (2") on top of the Coil springs, i ll wait until the car is fully assembled with the interior, bumpers etc that will add some more weight and make it squad down even more before i possibly remove them.
    i wanna see the stance 1st. and i would like to have the car pretty leveled.

    The Front assembly is based on OEM setup with BMR 2" lowering springs but i kept the horseshoes since there is nothing wrong with it.
    the wheel fitment will require 1.5" adapters.
    this adapters (S10 adapters) require some machining to fit the rotor hub in the front so i have to update on that later.

    here are the rears

    Hey guys..i updated most on my small block thread.
    But here are recent pics. I cut the front bmr coils to much and spacers dont help so i had to order a new set of 3" lowering springs! I took OPg since the bmr didnt get me the expected results.
    Lets see.
