Here are a couple photos of the wheels on the car now. I will try to get a couple more tomorrow and show you how close they are to hitting the upper ball control arm.

Do you have any pictures showing a full side shot of those new wheels ? I'm kinda thinking about getting some

It's been in the garage getting the headliner done. Give me about a week or two and I can get it outside when it's not raining and get some more photos.

Do the adapters cause any ill affects on handling or suspension components?

With Adapters, I've probably heard 100-200 people in the last 10 years say that catastrophic failure is only a matter of time. That said, I have never heard of a classic that's had adapter failure. I dunno.

I'm not an expert, but I play one on the internet.

I run adapters on my 2017 Pickup because I wanted a wider stance

I've got a 69 mustang in the garage right now with adapters on it....

No issues with either
