Custom wheels for Hot Rods and Muscle cars.

Friday, July 10, 2009 by Ethan Burns

Greetings fellow Rodders,

I’m talking to you with the ’34 Ford or the ‘50 Kaiser. And you with the '67 Plymouth and even you with the V-8 Mazda. I know its hard to find wheels and tires that fit just right after you replaced your rear axle with a Jag  independent suspension.

Welcome to the first part of a 5 part series intended to help you get the best fit, the best look and the best performance where it counts. Where the rubber meets the road.

 

In the next few installments I will discuss tire width and height and how it affects performance. Wheel width and how it relates to tire choice. How to measure wheel offset and backspacing. And bust some common myths about tire sizing.

Had a LEXANI grille package and wheels installed- on my 2010 Camaro SS over the weekend. 22' all the way around with 3' front lip & 4.5' lip in the back. American muscle gone Hollywood!
