Great stance. Are those the Circle Racing wheels?
Thanks! The car is on coil-overs in the front and rear drop springs (1.5" I believe).
They are Circle Racing wheels. Fronts are 17 x 8 and Rears are 17 x 11.5, running a 245/45R17 and 315/35R17. A lot of people have asked about backspacing so I'll have to go and measure sometime this spring!
Nice looking cars....
Finally got mine painted. BuickBullet, I really like your wheels. They’re pretty pricey though , right?
Sweet Skylark! Mine is white as well, what wheel and tire combo are you running?
it sure be AWESOME for us all pro-touring cars to be in Bowling Green together for our 40th anniversary. I can have a show area just for the pro-touring cars only if you all commit. Sid Meyers is a personal friend from our local club and he said if we can have a commitment from X amount (which he didn't say how many) but that would be extremely kool to park all together. You guys have some super sweet rides.! Think about this, we can have a cruise night in BG one of the nights to go out and have dinner together and ride around from hotel to hotel.
ps: you have a year to plan it and commit!
Boy, it is a long drive from Oregon to Bowling Green, but a get-together of Pro-Touring Buicks sounds awesome! If this comes to pass, I might have to see if I can make the long drive!
Yeah, unfortunately, they now are running for about $700 a rim, the prices have continued to go up while their availability dwindles.
Thanks! They are Ridler 695: 18x9.5(265/40/18)rear 18x8(225/45/18)fronts.
I’m very partial to white. Best color on these IMO!
What backspace are you running on those? Might grab a set of the Ridler 675
I want to say the rears are 5.5” BS and fronts are 4.5” BS.
IMHO Wheels can make or break a car?
And I did the whole 5 sections, and there are some mighty fine Tires & wheels / Cars on this posting!
GS 350, has been lowered by 49 years of use, gravity, and 132,000 pothole filled miles.
One inch up front and one inch in the rear with 17x8 front and 17x9 in the rear.
Beautiful car! Love the look
