    Hey guys I have a brand new set of Intro wheels for sale these are custom made to order. They come with New Toyo tires also. The entire set up has less that 100 miles on them prolly more like 30-40 miles. Tires still have nipples on them. I went with a bigger wheel setup for the car after seeing...
  2. Chit Chat Area, Anything on your mind goes here.
    I want to upgrade to bigger brakes, but the brakes I want require a 15 inch wheel. I love the wheels my grandpa chose for the car so I would really like to keep them, but they are 14 inches. I can’t find them anywhere online to see if they make a 15 or larger. Does anyone know the brand name...

    I'm hoping someone has the same front end setup as mine! I want to put different wheels on and the fronts are rubbing now that it's lowered. Here are the specs: - Earle Williams 2" drop spindles - Chevelle disc brakes - tubular upper arms with +5 - power steering, not sure what box it is? -...

    Need some help/advice with my 57! I have 20x10 wheels in the back, wrapped with 275s. I had to use wheels spacers to keep me clear of the rear fenders and the leaf springs, ended up working fine with no issues. Last night I installed 3" lowering blocks under the rear leafs. Upon initial...
  5. Super Stock/Pro Street & Modified Disc. 55-56-57
    Okay I am starting my build on my newly acquired 56 convertible. I have decided to go restomod vs stock. Granted it will not be a radical restomod, just not stock in certain areas. I am trying to decide which wheels to go with so I need some feedback please. The car will be painted black with...
  6. Trifive Steering/Power & Manual/Rack & Pinion- 605
    Howdy, I recently took my 57 Nomad for a ride, Austin to Houston, and along the way one of the wheel spinners fell off. The wheels were on the car when I bought it so not sure of the make/model. If you could point me in the right direction to replace the lost one I would appreciate it. I've...

    Hey folks, I have a restomod 1959 Chevy Impala that I acquired from Belton, Missouri in July. Everything is going as planned but I like to stay ahead of the momentum. I have been looking into tires and wheels and too much unfamiliar information has presented itself. What I have in mind is 15"...

    So - I want 15" Cragar SS wheels on my 1956 150 Sedan. Rear is stock, with power front disc mod. I have dug through dozens of posts on tires and wheels, and took all the measurements and used the wheel/tire calculator, but I'm still a bit confused. And the local wheel shops are all but worthless...
  9. Super Stock/Pro Street & Modified Disc. 55-56-57
    The passenger front tire on my ‘57 Belair has developed a lump. At low speed, the steering wheel wobbles embarrassingly from it. I need to replace one, raised white letter tire, which most likely means I need to replace two tires; possibly all four. The tires are 70 series, if I’m replacing...

    If you have a stock rear with no body modification what's the widest rim I can put on a 1955 Chevy Bel Air Sedan? I was going to roll the gender lip for a little more clearance. I would love to drop some 15x10's on it. Any advice on what can be put on or what mods need to be done to make it...

  12. Super Stock/Pro Street & Modified Disc. 55-56-57
    I recently added two inch drop spindles and front disc brakes to my 56. The offset is said to be 5/16" on each side. I'd like to now add 17 inch wheels. I think I will go with 7 inch wide rims, as I'm retaining the manual steering and don't want to make it any harder to turn the wheel, as...
  13. Paint & Bodywork Questions and Answers
    I just purchased new (wider) OE-style steel wheels for my 56 belair to go with baby moons and beauty rings and I'd like to paint them to match the Sierra Gold body paint. I'm considering powder coating but it's obviously pricier and the match is tougher to make. I've also heard that it's...

I will be rehooping my rear billet wheels to increase the rear wheel width to 20x10 wheels. I'm...
  15. Suspension Questions Chassis, Brakes, Shocks, Etc
    Has anyone replaced the stock 14inch '57 rims (7.10x14 tires) with mid year ('63 - '66) Corvette knock off rims and tires? Will they fit with the standard drum brakes and/or will they fit with disc brakes on the front? I'm really tired of trying to measure off-sets etc. and this must have been...

    Anybody experience putting these on a 55-57 with the knockoff spinners instead of the flat stock center covers? There is one lug that you cannot install without some Jerry making tool to be able to torque it. I have a tool...home-made that works for mild torque...not close to 125-150 though. If...

    Had a buyer come up from Texas yesterday and take away my 50 coupe. It was bittersweet, hate to see it go but it freed up some funds for the 57. Suspension and wheels are gonna get ordered this week. Gonna go with Boss 338 18/20 for the wheels. Probably 255/35/20 and 235/40/18 for the rubber...
