Yeah,……..forgot about that. For whatever benefit anybody gets from that in a street driven car, the IRS swap isn’t worth the wheel choice limitation in my book.He'd have to ditch the IRS for that to work... or seriously modify it which might negate the benefits there.
The other wheels I had on the car originally were torque thrusts..I mistakenly painted them green-gold. Waaay too much green. Those got blasted and repainted black an orange..You've raised the bar too high. I was expecting a switch to a dual clutch transmission.
I think those wheels could work, and really change the look of the Gilazilla quite a bit. I like how they're kind of a modern take on a traditional pattern, which gives it a solid muscle car vibe. Didn't you have a set of bullet wheels with a similar color scheme back in the day? Have you tried any photoshopping with these wheels and recent pictures as a low cost trial run?
Well those wheels are no more…they got sold off when the current versions arrived.Those look really good! They flow well with the color scheme and make the car look like it's sitting lower. I really dig that look because it balances the color focus across the whole car.
Originally I was going to widen the car. Not going that route now. A really wide tire adds handling issues unless you can get it square front and back. A 265 tire can actually bite pretty good with the right brand tire on the street ( in moderation ). There was a study done somewhere. It has to do with the loading of the tire. The wider it is the less pressure for x weight....blah blah blah....but other dynamics of the tire suffer. Tire contact patch can end up about the same in measurement of actual contact.Yeah,……..forgot about that.

Then what would he write about, designing, building than rebuilding a power steering bracket?I don't think the South agrees with you Mike. You should probably consider moving.
