    It is close but not quite the same.

    Some people are using 5x4.75 (also known as 5x120.7) Corvette wheels for their drag tires. I don't know if anyone is using the English bolt pattern for daily-driver wheels.

    We never had a chance to see the wheels when they were being modified. I would be afraid to guess the thickness. Eric at Vaughn Machine did the work if you want to give him a call.

    Any issues with the wheels so far? Seriously considering going this route. I didn't read back through the posts but I believe I recall you were going to do something to alleviate some minimal rubbing? Thanks,

    Greg do you plan on putting the factory 285 on the front factory wheels? If not, do you think they would fit?
