Re: 60-66 Tire/Wheel Pics

I'll get some later today. I'm going to the tire shop to have the tires mounted and I'll post a few. Yeah I figured I'd make them resemble the old Halibrands. (but cheap status!) haha!

Re: 60-66 Tire/Wheel Pics

I'm diggin' the grey centers. I've always wanted to try that, so thanks for showing it off. I'm a huge fan of Halibrands, except for the price.

If there's any way, try to find an 8" rear wheel. It'll fit the -275s a bit better, IMO. I like where you're heading with this, though. To me, the big/little look says "Hot Rod".

That combination looks fantastic. I'd suggest take your time getting used to making turns or doing any hard braking. 165x15s were designed for VWs and other small cars weighing nearly half as much as 60-66 trucks. The cool factor can be worth it, but the handling may be dramatically different than what you're currently familiar with.

Re: 60-66 Tire/Wheel Pics

I'm anxious to see the final results!! I've been kicking around many options and slotted mags are a definite one.

Unhappy Re: 60-66 Tire/Wheel Pics

DAMN IT! Not gonna work! I need at least -4" or -4.5" back spacing! These mags are standard 3" back spacing. Duh! I got so excited that I didn't think of this! Back to the drawing board. Damn it looks tough too!

Re: 60-66 Tire/Wheel Pics

Man that's a bummer!!! Looks sweet. As for finding some with that deep of back spacing, good luck. I can't recall finding any that had more than a 4" BS.

Are you running an axle out of a '71+ truck or did you keep the stock housing and put axle shafts in? The '71+ axles are wider.

Maybe I'll change out the rear end for a shorter one...

Re: 60-66 Tire/Wheel Pics

It would be a shame to not be able to use those wheels. They look great.

American Racing does make a 15x8 with a 5x5 pattern and 4.5” backspace – part number A695873 in the Ansen Sprint series. Not sure if the extra inch in width would still cause a problem on the fender side or not.

http://www.wheelsforless.com/detail.aspx?ID=2520

They also list a 15x7 with a 4” offset – part number A695773. Perhaps if you could find the new wheels on sale somewhere they might cost less than swapping the rear axle.

This is the way to go. How much do you need them to move in?

That wheel should work just fine.

Re: 60-66 Tire/Wheel Pics

Dude you're killing me! Stop with the artsy fartsy pics and how about one of the wheel, straight on, close enough to see the full wheel and tire without anything else.

Want to get an idea of how it looks straight on and not from an angle. Thanks!!! and looking good.
