you have to roll the outer fender lip and you have to hammer the inside fender in. I am sure that there is a more civilized way but thats what I did to mine. I don't have drag bags just harder springs and shocks and have no rub on a bigger tire (275/40/18). I also have a wider wheel from a c5 vette
Get just two rims and put DRs and that will be for the track only. With the stock brakes I think you can even put 15s on the rear. You can get 16s from an f body. Some will say that the bolt pattern is not exactly the same but I am running Vette wheels for more than 10000 miles without any problem (with ARP studs). And how much power your car makes. Drs hook very good. You can go with a narrower tire.
i know of a pair of 17 inch ta wheels with 275/40/17 on them i also have e-xtra stock wheels . its stock makes 342 to rear wheels ? have things to go on it just wanted to run it stock and go from there .
I had 265 et streets on my stock 18s and the tire bulged a little. Now I run 285 45 r18 NT05R on my VMR +50 rears with absolutely no fender lip. It still will rub where the bumper meets the quarter turning into a steeper driveway.
I'm finally on the homestretch with MY 65 gto resto, and I'm shopping for a 18x8 Front 18x9 rear rim setup, I think I'm going with the ridler 850 rims but need help on sizing the tires anyone have a similar rim size that has fitted tires that can help? Thanks in advance
I have 69 GTO and getting some 15x7 Rally II wheels that are HW coded. I know these are mid 70's codes for Firebirds etc. I am just trying to confirm if i get these that "proper" reproduction trim rings will still fit these if I get them from Ames or OPGI.
a 1965 GTO Rally I Center Cap?
Should I immerse it in paint stripper over night and clean with a nylon brush?
What paint stripper would anyone recommend?
Or is their another product out there that will remove it without destroying the finish on the center cap?
GTOJUNIOR mentioned that there is a 3 lug retainer that can be purchased as an aftermarket device to use on Rally I center caps to stop them from rattling.
I don't know what they look like and does anyone have experience using them?
If you do where can I buy them?
