That looks fantastic. Same question on how you got the rear tires to fit.

I actually had these 325's on the same wheels with 4.5" backspacing, and they fit just fine. They were slightly proud of the lip and I wanted to tuck them in, so I could adjust the coilovers for a better launch, so I went with 5.5" backspacing. You'll have to notch the frame to get a 5.5" to work, otherwise 4.5" is fine for most. Some cars might need a small spacer

What is the idea behind a 17" front & a 15" rear?

Perhaps it is just me, but it looks backwards. The rest of the car looks great!

They are a 3 piece Simmons wheel. 18x10 rear 18x9 front. Not sure of the back spacing. Lowered the car on coil overs and clearance the fender to accommodate the 325/40/18 M&H drag radial. No frame modifications, just outer fender. Not for the faint at heart.... I cut, banged and heated every and anything to make this work.

Mike, your combo looks just about perfect, to my taste anyway. What are the tire & wheel specs and did you need to do anything to get the rears to not rub the fenders?

Thought i would update the ride in case anyone wanted to see what moog5660's do to the front end on an otherwise stock suspension with bilsteins all around. I had a full coil cut (pic taken before settling) and the 'after' is the pic on the bottom. It dropped a little more than an inch up front so far (I am a fan of a slight rake). Other pics with my tire/wheel stats can be found previously in this thread but basically i have nitto dr 275 in the rear and 225's up front on gbody reproductions.
