Got my wheels and tires installed, digging the way they look.

Going to hopefully get some more/better pictures soon, but here's one to wett your apetite. :-)

I also blogged about the experience, if you want to read more click here (http://www.nslms.com/2009/08/02/67-caddy-new-kicks/)

Looks good, just need to work on the suspension now....

In your blog, you said it was tough to get the wheel and tire on the rear... Did you remove the fender skirt? that should give you all the room you need to remove and install a new wheel and tire (that is a tiny bit smaller in over all diameter than the original one.)

I'm not one for rims; especially ones on classic cars. But those look real nice; not completely overboard with the design, but enough to make the car your own. Get the body work done and add a smooth, low-key, low-rider paint-job (no designs, just solid color(s) accented by straight lines) and the car will look perfect.

Agreed, the wheels compliment the car well but I dont know about the color. Perhaps dark blue with a black vinyl roof?
