    I emailed them and they responded telling me they changed manufactures allowing them not to be able to chrome them anymore....

    I'm seriously considering buying a pair of N90's
    They advertise with a Backspace of 4.25 is this ok or will it get me in trouble??
    I cannot find a definitive answer regarding the correct backspace.
    The car is a little lower then stock and I'm considering tires in the following sizes: Fr. 235/45-17 and Rr. 255/45-17
    The tires I have now are: Fr. 225/60-15 and Rr. 245/60-15

    FYI I live 20 minutes from Restore A Muscle Car. More than willing to go out there to that facility. ;)

    I ordered a set Monday. Hopefully next week I can get them mounted. I am trying to decide on tires now. My tire shop is going to bring in a few different tires to help me decided. Seems like 245/45/17 is the tire to go with. I have event seen a few with 235/55/17. I really don't care to have a super wide tire on the back, but I am curious to see a 275/40/17 on the back.

    I'm about to pull the trigger on a set of 17x8's for my '74 I assume 4.25 BS. I don't want a staggered setup because I want to rotate them. The price on these jumped since this thread started but I still like them. The best price I can find on a set of 4 is Jegs for $899.99 shipped, anybody know of a place that has them for less?

    It also appears the best choice in tire size for the 8" wide is a 245/45R17 which is good because there is a wide selection of tires in that size and plenty of performance tires. Lastly, any concerns with using these cast wheels for autocross?

    I am in the same position for my 80Z since mine came with N90's originally. With the price difference now I am almost leaning towards US Mags Ramblers for $200 less a set. The savings would ensure I can get really good tires, yet I am trying to stay close to stock in appearance.
