Front
Rims: 17x8 Torque thrust II
Tires: 275/45/17 Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-03

Rear
Rims : 17x11 Torque thrust II
Tires: 315/35/17 Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-03
Has a 6" Back spacing
I had to get a 2" wheel adapter to keep the rim and tire from hitting the controll arm and the Coil over shock. Thats why in the above pic, the rear tire is not mounted. To prevent this you will probably need to get a rim with only a 4" or 4 1/2" backspacing.

Tire, Rims, Ballance, Valve stems, etc...Out the door at Discount Tire $2200

Well, I did a 12 hr marathon on my car yesterday. Yes, On Fathers day. Thats what I wanted to do...be left alone and work on just MY car. I ran all the brake lines, Parking brakes, Fuel lines, Installed the gas tank...etc..all in 12hrs.
A few things you may notice in my pics, I ran a stainless braided fuel line and I ran my battey cables thru a nylon mesh.
Everything went real smooth. No problems at all.

Looks Great Phil....  At this rate I'll give you another week and you'll probably have welded a lawn chair in there so you can drive it...    ;D ;D ;D

Today, Sunday 25th, I got the Heat Shield, Fire Wall ready for polishing...Any recomendations on for the best out come. I like the mirror finish on yours Ryan. What did you use and where did you get it?

I also worked on the fuel system. I got the fuel pump and the fuel filter mounted and plumbed.

Looks Great Phil!!!  I'm interested to hear your thoughts on the fuel pump. I ran an Aeromotive Street/Strip and its very loud. I can hear it over the engine idle.  What kind did you end up with?

Thanks for the compliments. I ended up using a hard buffing wheel with Tripoli and then a soft wheel with Meguire's Aluminum Polish.  All available at Lowes or HD. Turned out pretty good overall.  Lots of work though. It probably took 8+ hrs in total.  

Cheers,
Ryan Cassidy
