Hey Everyone,

This weekend I am finally finishing a pro touring conversion on my 69 GTO. Completely overhauled the suspension, engine, braking and fuel system. Should be able to crank her up this weekend. The final area I need to upgrade is the wheel and tire combo. I was considering going with the Year one 17x8 inch rally II wheels so I could preserve some of the original look. I was also looking at Nitto NT555 tires.

Fo the tire size I am considering 255/50R17 all around.

Questions:

Do you guys know if the 255/50R17 tire will fit up ftont on a 69 GTO with the SC&C Stage 2 suspension package. I think that is a 2 inch drop in the front.

I can't tell you JT, but maybe you should look into a Percy's Wheelrite. It will let you simulate any wheel/tire size and offset to see if it will clear. Percy's has a website and I think it is available through them or Summit/Jegs. :seeya

Jt, I have one of those tools I'd be willing to loan you....

Are you coming to Autorama? I'm there with the Beast.
