    Are they 5x120 BMW bolt pattern? If so did you have to modify anything?

    This would give me a ton of options! Which lug nuts exactly are you talking about?

    69GS400s ...my own amusement ride!

    If you are going to cut it really close, you better measure both sides of the car .. I have found that the bodies can be off center on the chassis by as much as 1/4" side to side.

    I think they called woble lug nuts they will center correctly when tightening.

    Here is my 72 project. It has a 9inch rear end upgrade. So I got 1in adapters to my 18x10.5 25mm offset wheels with 295/40 nittos . I am happy with the stance.
    I will fold/cut the lip in the center a bit for secure clearance.
    Good room to the frame and shock location.

    Wahahaa! Lol HELLA! Yup I grew up in Union City and Frisco pretty much all my life. I’ve been living in Rocklin for the past decade. Love it out here. Guess I’m getting old lol. Aside from family and friends, I honestly don’t miss much from the Bay. Few things though, like riding through the twisties and heading back home along the hwy 1 coast. That was always fun. Also, I do miss all my go-to spots to grub! How you liking it out in Texas?
