Human nature doesn't change. I remember when people thought I was strange for insisting on 15" rims instead of 14s.
An excellent choice.
That must have been fun. How is the ride and is what were his comments after driving it?
A daily driver to me is one that is nice and presentable and fully functional, but not a show car.
Say, a #3 to a #2 using Hemmings Old Car...
I'm not sure how the Baer brakes change the equation, but you shouldn't need a spacer or have to roll the lips with six inch backspacing.
Stang looks fantastic as is.
I imagine that the front backspacing is maxed out, but the back has some more room if someone wanted to stuff even more tire under there. Is that...
Very nice stance and look.
I believe you said the fronts were 9s, what bs did you end up with?
Mine is really a vote for different sizes front to rear. The 255s would probably rub on the front unless you squeezed them on too small a rim.
A worthy goal Cupid, but I don't think you'll be happy with 235s all around. That does not come even close to filling out the fenders.
Not at all, it's what I'm planning to go with.:nice:
Great job; it looks good as is.
I started buying 69 and 70 mustangs in 1978 in Northwest Florida. There were plenty of 70 models with original 351 2V Windsor motors in that area.
Those are the infamous dorkthrusters.
I've got an open mind, but it would be hard to convince me that 17" low profile tires makes a lowered and modified stang handle worse.
I agree that where the tire is sitting inside the fenderwell is damn near perfect. Also, the ride height is excellent.
Even so, this set-up...
This will be interesting to follow along. It sounds like you've already got your rims, what is the width and backspacing?
