    Are those 17" Steel Wheels? Where did you get them?

    Yes they are 17s' and fit the factory dog dish caps. They are series 62 from Wheel Vintiques in 17x9. I run 285-40-17 in the rear and 245-45-17 in the front. Summit has the best prices on them, not cheap though and heavy. I love the look though.

    BMR 2" lowering springs with 245/60R15 in the front and 275/60R15 in the back. I wouldn't go any lower than this. My front tires rub a little on sharp parking lot turns.

    Coilovers w/ everything tightened up plus a bucket of Hotchkiss suspension parts to keep anything from rubbing:

    My 1971 skylark, Global west, Qa1 shocks in the rear, koni shocks up front, 255-18 front 295-18 rear, 2" spindle drop, 1" shorter rear coils. Problem is I added a lot of weight to the car. Going back to stock coils in rear, and still playing with coils in the front, image.jpg
