60-66 Tire/Wheel Pics

Hey guys, how about posting some pictures of your tire/wheel combinations. I'm trying to decide what to run on the 63 and I need some inspiration. Be sure to list sizes, offset, etc...

Re: 60-66 Tire/Wheel Pics

255/45-18 all the way around without touching a thing (well inside rear wells are pinched at the top)... The tires are rated for 180 mph..lol.. but they were the most reasonable I could find... 18" is the odd duck in wheels and tires it seems.

American Racing Torqlite wheels. I don't remember if they are 18 x 7 or 8... I think 7...

This is an old pic... but wheels and tires are same...
