Got some wheels today

Post by jrb75 on Wed Mar 09, 2011 8:31 pm

Got 4 15x8.5 and 2 15x10. the 8.5's all have curb rash and need a REAL good cleaning. One of the fins on the 10's is chipped but, for what I payed for em, I'm not complaining. I didn't think I'd ever find a halfway decent set of 8 1/2s. It was either these or get a set of rallys...lol

I dig em, Im not sure I'll be able to use the 10's. Originally, I was going to do 275/60's on the rear and 255/60 on the front on a set of 15x8 wheels. The guy I got em from said they were all 3 7/8 BS and my quick check basically looks like 4 on those 10s. His add was the 2 15x10 and 2 15x8.5, I mentioned that I wanted to get a complete set of 15x8.5 and so he threw the other 2 in mainly cause I knew what the turbine wheels were and that I like em...lol

I love them wheels. I bet they make so much air turbulance at speed that you would blow a mustang off the road just from the air from the wheels. Why don't you just give the wheels to me. JB

The wheels look good, but you should buy a set of springs to raise that rear end up, lol. Maybe it's just the picture, but it appears that the front end sits higher than the back.

Looks like you nailed the backspacing just perfect though. Beer I like it!

Yeah, I didn't notice till I put those wheels on. It'll drive me crazy until I get a new set. I don't want a rough ride or jacked up way high, suggestions?

I got a good set of stockers. Here's the only decent pic I have of them installed, but the rear sat about 1/2" higher then the front.



I went with some heavy duty King Kong solid as a rock springs for my car so these are no longer needed. If you are interested, then shoot me a PM.

OTOH, if you did want a solid ride or just to sit around 2" higher than you currently sit (about 1-1.5" front factory), I'd suggest JC Whitney. They sell some springs that are 4" lift springs for 68-72 A Bodies, but with our added weight & already longer factory springs, they only give a little lift with some added stiffness. I hear that 91-96 Caprice rear springs will have a similar effect due to their added weight. 77-90 rear springs should be close to factory ride height.

I ended up getting a set of springs from Summit. They were a set of springs from Global West (I think...) that lowered my car about an inch and a half. I wanted a look where the car sat level spring wise and the tires gave it a bit of a rake. That, and the springs were only a few bucks more over factory style replacements and still ride pretty well.
