After a front alignment, the wheels sit like I wanted. I am using 1 inch spacers on the back to fill out the wheel well. I chose 245/40/18 all season for handling and the ability to rotate front to back. These are directional tires.I could get away with using 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 inch spacer with these tires. Currently no rubbing front or back anywhere.

The quarter window seals needed some work. I'm not sure which direction to go with these. They really aren't bad, just enough that it bothered me. And seeing as how I have some forced time off right now , I might as well get things done.With Fox Restoration now being almost $900 to redo them-- I think I'll just tackle these myself.

Just my two cents, but those wheels are a little busy for all the right angles of a Fox Body. I'm still a firm believer in the 17" 5 lug Ponys.

Habu135... Thank you - I realize not everyone will like these, although they look really good in person.
I wanted something that wasn't on every single fox , and with the 13 inch Cobra brakes -I wanted to make sure they fit.
I agree with you on the 17" 5 lug pony's- and I will probably end up with a set.
Toolow91 has convinced me that those wheels are SHARP. Probably the best looking Fox wheels made.

I don't have them anymore. I sold those very quickly on Facebook marketplace.
They were actually listed for about 30 minutes before they were sold.
They were 4 lug wheels. Since I was swapping to 5 lug I did not have a need for them.

Can you tell a difference ? That's how I felt about them. The car was built with them and I wanted them on there. I felt a little difference. The rear felt a little more planted....but it may have been just me rationalizing my purchase back then.

darryl paarman:

Just curious what your process was on restoring the window trim? I'm looking to redo my window trim & wiper arms this spring when it gets warm. I'm imagining you did sanding and paint? Any tips or tricks? Thanks! You car is looking great! I like that you chose some different wheels instead of the standard cobra or pony wheels. I think it works!
