Default I drag race, bro.

My beautiful friend Zane found some old mags off a 63 Pontiac GTO on craigslist and I couldn't pass up some sweet winter wheels. They're 14x9 et awesome.

I thought it would be a disaster but I actually love how they look. I need to pull my rear fenders out some and spin my rear coils down a bit and then I'll be happy.

Thanks to The FitGarage for getting the smallest 14 inch tire ever made onto a 14x9

I would love this without the huge tires. Definitely an interesting look.

If front camber would much rear and with smaller tires, it would look like proper euro car.

Couldn't put my finger on what looked a little wrong and it is the tyre size after seeing comment. Style could look fucking awesome with a slimmer tyre on there.

I wish I could get smaller tires as well. But these are just about the smallest 14s I can get. I even looked on tirestretch and no one has stretched anything smaller. It took three people and a bead blaster.

Also this:

I started thinking about what I said after I posted and then realized smaller tires would result in the car not being drivable, Definitely cool wheels.

That would look stupid with smaller tires even if you could get them.

I love it, maybe a touch of camber but I don't mind how it sits right now at all. Good job, those wheels are sick.

At first I lolled, then I serious'd.

This is fucking awesome. I think it just needs a touch of camber.

I don't know what is poking more, your wheels or my pants.

If you're serious about those wheels try some over-fenders

Hahaha thanks.

I'm only partially serious, really just trying to sell my other wheels to fund my m30 swap and keeping these until I save up for something nice.

Looks good, was doubting you for a second there when you said 14s but the end result is quite nice.

14's are awesome, especially when buying tires.

This car defines what I would do if I owned a BMW, stinger and all.

I think it looks awesome. Like everyone else said, a touch of front camber and pulled fenders and it would be perfect.

I have 3 questions

-what coils are you on?
-what volvo is that front lip off (volvo)?
- details on the exhaust?

the car is full of awesome. view from the front is so mean with those wheels. I like where its going, loved the roadstars but selling for a swap is definitely worth it.
