I'm not a fan of wagon wheels or rubber band tires, especially on older cars. I wouldn't say so usually, but you did ask....

personally heave, but it is up to you, don't be swayed by anyone else's opinion.

Don't worry about offending me, I put these on just to see if they'd fit and what it would look like. I'm more in the "heave" camp.

I was looking at your post again seeing what others thought & my wife walked in & saw the photo's & said oh what's that? I said a guy wants to know what people think of the wheels & she said leave them, it looks sharp. I don't think an EM would look good with them but the style of the LM makes them jump right out. :tu: I usually don't care for the thin tires but on that car they just seem to fit in. Keep them for a while and see what reactions you get from the public.

dang well... they lookin good ! and im as old school as they get wheel wise

fat tires and fifteen inches is gospel (for most muscley cars)

but the vair can ride on so many different rims...and look good more so than most cars :chevy:

so leave em and enjoy

good thang bout rims... u can change em anytime! ya rarely take a big loss

aint like a paint job....yur done there!

Not fond of low profile tires, they ride rough. had a set on the wife's Mercedes and got rid of them. In my opinion heave them.

So now it's going painted , we started the teardown last night.
Btw, thanks for the feedback. The 18x7 fronts fit and look good to us, but the 20x9 rears are too big.
