Shaun:

So Chris is good with the reduction in sidewall compliance that comes with 35 series tires?

Give her my best.

You don't worry about wheel spacers in open track events?
Yeah, the plan is to matte black all the chrome and paint it grabber blue like the new Mustangs. Sort of Mad Max meets Grabber blue. She likes the tough look and isn't into the blingy chrome so much. Black is the new chrome! Going to go with red calipers though just for some pop and to draw attention to parts I make.

This car won't see any track time so long as my wife owns it so I'm not worried about the spacer. Its all part of my grand plan. I bought her this so she has something to drive while my coupe gets a full cage and a Jerico making it a little harder for her to climb over the door bars and drive to work in a suit! She'll still do it though but the 70 has a back seat so we can take the kids out.

I got these from American Muscle. There are a few places having them made in different widths and with slightly different backspacing and colors.

Jeff,

The car will be getting my front/rear Street valved coilover this winter so it'll drive like a modern car and the sidewall won't be a problem.

I'll pass on your regards and maybe we'll see you soon. She has been bugging me to go back to NorCal on a food and wine trip!

Let me know when and I'll rustle up the usual suspects for a proper welcome back!

That thing looks real good! I usually do not like big wheels on old cars but I really like that. Maybe its just the angle but it looks great. I also havent decided what the color of my car will be when she is all done but I think my mind has been made up!

I think the 69-70 body style can pull off larger wheels than the 65-68, especially the rear. The Sportsroof body style has big hips and that sloping rear window, adds mass to the rear end so a big wheel looks good there.

If I mini-tubbed it a 12" wide wheel would fit no problem.

Those look nice! I'm glad you confirmed the 9" wide fittment up front for me, and I'm shure she will love the new look, and ride. Grabber blue is my all time favorite, no chrome, and a decent stance, this will be bad! Just needs a little something different on the front lower valance...

new wheels look killer, but i'm a restomod type of guy... so i tend to appreciate larger than stock wheels.
