Not too big, just too big for how tall that car is

Do you have a super, or are you interested in something similar on a standard? (My project fake-oval is on 19's)

He needs much bigger brakes to get away with those large wheels... Kinda like a Civic with Dubs, just shows off the punny girlie man brakes!

I was going to say something about the brakes, but my finished brakes aren't done yet, so no room to talk (rears are 11" vented stratus front rotors with spirit R/T calipers, fronts are yet to be determined 13 or 14" rotors)

Hi

I took those photos a few years ago at classic car show in Sydney. I havenít seen the guy around for a while, Iím pretty sure he just used smaller coils. I agree, it does need to come down a bit.

Iím building a new car, I had 17s on my old one but Iím thinking about going 18s on the new car but I donít want to get the Tonka toy look that some cars get with too tall rims.

Steve

You guys say what you want, that car is very hot looking!! I would go 18's only if I could put 225 40 18's all the way around the car. The pot holes in this city are ruff!!
