POST PICS WITH BIGGER AFTER MARKET RIMS
« on: April 24, 2017 - 08:53:47 pm »
 I'm looking to change the look of my car with 18" in the rear and 17" front.I want to run the biggest tire I can with factory located springs,quarter lip on rear isn't rolled and air shocks that I want to take off.I may have to recurve my springs for desired ride height/adjustable shocks....any suggestions? I prefer a wheel that is chrome or bright aluminum and has to be easy to clean.We had lexani firestars on our chrysler 300c and they were a pian in the azz!!!I am liking a flat/wide 5 or 6 spoke type rim. Lets see your pics and pls post wheel/tire size pls

thanks Moparians :ylsuper:

My 72 Cuda, but my wheels aren't as large as you are looking for. I have 14x7's in the front and 15x9's in the rear.

I like the strobe stripe you've done. It brings out the size of the tires.
It is almost matching the Steelers colors on that board or light in the background.
