Got my 17x9 Rally II's today!

Just got dropped off by the man in brown. I'm open to input on what tires to run. Size and brand. The brakes are LS1 which I plan to run front and rear. Guess it's time to start a build thread!

As tall and fat that will fit. Rears probably 275s, depending off the rim offset. I would contact the manufacturer or go on the restomod forums and see what they put on them. Chevelle info works on GTO's most of the time. I would say 275's rear, 235s front.
Nice ride!

My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

Those look Fantastic!

Saw a real Judge locally that had those wheels and it looked downright mean! Nice choice and they should look awsome on your 65'.

Great choice of wheel!!!!! Now for the hard part......so many sizes so little time! I would pick a brand first.....I'm hoping to go with Continental myself. ..Just take your time and BE SURE before you buy!! Eric

these wheels just became available nov 1 i think. i have been drooling over them myself. my wife has given me the ok. i just cant pull the trigger yet for some reason. waiting to see how they work for somebody else i think. 17x9 has me nervous for the fronts. it sure looks sweet sitting there though.

just looked at year one again and now they say approximate delivery date jan 30. glad you got yours so soon.

I'm sure they're going to be spendy too. My truck has 17"s. The rubber is a whole lot more expensive than the 16"s. I can't imagine what the guys are payin' that are "rollin' the 2 - 0s" ................

Right now I'm thinking 275's on the rear, 245's up front. I'm waiting on APC control arms and some other stuff, then the car goes under the knife for a few weeks.

66tempestGT, I ordered them about 10 days ago, so I feel lucky to have them.

Cost of tires doesn't worry me. It will be a fraction of what everything else is costing.
