New Shoes for Lucy

Recommended Posts

chrome, very nice pick sir congrats! Hey is it possible to fit 10 under these cars with no rub? The consensus is usually 50/50 yes and no votes. backspace and tire size if you say yes sir.

I just pulled the trigger and I ordered new shoes for Lucy from Summit Racing. They should be here mid-week ~ May 1st.

I followed Indyman Joe's advice - 15x7 in front and 15 x 8 in the rear. 4 inch backspacing.

The winner is:

Chromed Rally IIs from Wheel Vintques....no more trim rings to screw around with.

Gonna be killer buddy! JustA about any 5 spoke dresses a car better than other wheels. Those are a great choice.

Careful what you wish for Ringo. Cecil B. DeMille I'm not, but that doesn't mean I can't slop something together.

Thanks!

Thanks. Right now I am thinking that the tires will be B F Goodrich T A radials. The fronts will probably be 255R16x15, the rears 275R60x15.

I have no experience on that particular brand/model, so I cannot give to you a proper feedback unfortunately. However, I am a Bridgestone passionate, because I like tyres that have tough sides being really reactive and direct, albeit other like Michelin. How are these BF Goodrich? Did you just have them on one of your rides?

They sure do. I get the fronts mid-week. I won't be able to get them mounted until around Mother's Day weekend since this weekend is shot moving the kid home from college for the summer.

Nice. Nah, being Frosty seems to mean we hold onto the Christmas season, including snow, longer than we should. So if that means more Christmas presents for me, I ain't complaining!!!

All four wheels are now here. It will be next weekend (Mother's Day weekend) before I can get new rubber mounted to them.

I have to move the kid home from college for the summer tomorrow.

This is true. Now if I can just get a warm weekend with no rain so I can go out and play and work on Lucy, I'd be very, very happy!

Walking on my lawn right now is like walking on a saturated sponge.
