    I'm looking to go as wide as possible in the back without modification. I've seen in this thread and others that many can fit 17x10.5 or 17x11 rims on 315 tires.

    Where are you all finding these rim sizes? The widest I see is 9in on most sites. Ideally I'd be going for cragar soft 8s.

    Formula 43, but I believe they're out of business now.

    the car looks like it sits stock height, what size tires are on it and are there any rubbing problems or modifications to fit?

    How did you get 315's to fit up front?!

    Car looks amazing, by the way. Definitely one of my favorite cars on this site now.

    John, I was wondering what the dimension is on the 0003 centercap indentation? Your website lists it as a fitment for a Firebird. I want to use a Z/28 emblem in the center and I think it may be the same size. Any help would be appreciated.

    The 003 recess is 2 1/4" wide. The 001 is 1 3/4". Here's a pic of them next to each other. Thanks for the interest!

    Thank you "Big Wheeled Cars" posters! I did my forum research, picked up the dice and rolled them, because I measured nothing. Went the safe'ish route. 235/40's and 275/40's on the standard 18x8 and 18x9.5 Boss 338 set up. I couldn't be happier. Thanks again to everyone who contributes here. This knowledge base is invaluable.
