Thanks Dan - The fronts are 18"x7 with a 4.5" offset - The 8" wide would probably fit with a different backspace.
The rears are 20"x 16" wide with a 5.5" backspace- theres alot more room in the rear to go deeper towards the frame. - this was the max width they build.

Re: 1956 Chevy Pro-Street Build

Got my door latches installed today along with the brackets made for the popper solenoid and the locking mechanism. They are all mounted together on a plate together - that mounts into the space right behind the cab door jamb.

Fits perfect!

Just needs a little bondo filler, a little touch-up painting and it will be good to go!

And that is why with so many extra little things a project takes so long to complete, well worth the extra things, each step makes the truck more special.
