Are those American Racing wheels? What size are they? They look nice on there.

Rocket Racing Fuel series, chromed aluminum:  fronts 15x7 with 4.25" backspacing and rear 15x8 with 4.50" backspacing.  BF Goodrich T/A front 225/15/60 and rear 255/15/60.  The wheel heights are about 1.5 inch differential.  Both sets have sidewalls that extend about .50 inch over the rims.  I think that I had more room for 275's in the back but once the car is fully loaded I'm thinking the 255's will look nice. I was concerned with the back spacing for the fronts but it all seems to be fine.

Your wheels and tires look great!  :2thumbs:  I also used Plastex to repair several cracks and a missing fin on my '70 'Cuda grill and I agree that it works well.  I also have several scratches in my original glass so I was pleased to hear of your success in getting rid or lessening them so I'll give that a try also.  Car is really coming along and looking great! :ylsuper:

"usraptr" = United States raptor - bird of prey = United States Bald Eagle.  FYI, somebody else thought of it first so I had to drop the "O" in raptor.
