    Ken,

    The wheels are 17 X 7 Boyd Coddington Smoothie II's, I think the tires are 245/45 in the rear and 225/45 in the front. I got standard backspacing (4 inch I think), in hindsight, I probably should have gone 4 3/4 or so in the rear and got a bigger tire.

    It has 2 inch dropped coils from Orignal Parts group (opgi.com) to get that mean look.

    The color is actually more of a copper than red.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Do you think I should put white letter tires on it?

    And the sound-- should it be throaty or quiet?

    Frank

    PS I already got me some of those fancy cornering lights like Bart's ( the post just above this one's avatar)!!

    IMHO, raised whit letters look good on them, but then again I have them on all my cars, I tried to put them on my wife's BMW but she wouldn't let me
    I'm old so I like quite, until I stomp on the gas, then all he!! should break loose.

    I would have posted some earlier but I didn't have any good pictures. Sorry about the fuzziness but my scanner sucks and I think it needs cleaned on the bottom of the glass (inside).
