Sleeper521

Recommended Posts

Just picked up some chevy rallyes for my 521 for $120.. going to paint/PC and get them mounted.  

 

Anyone recommend a tire brand?  I assume 195/50r15 is the size to get.

Hi,

 

guys just got these few days ago for 520 but don't know what they are, it has no marking on the back just a stamp when they were made in 1997 OCT, any seen these before?

I am trying to decide about wheels and tires for my 1976 620, but I'm not technical enough to make sure I get the right sizes..... ANY help would be appreciated.

 

I am looking at 16", 7 or 8 inch width wheels and "semi" low profile tires....... looking to get that 70's look. (looking at U.S. Wheel chrome 75 Series). I had very similar wheels on a 620 I bought new in 1977.

 

I want the wheels/tires to fit flush to the wheel wells and want to make sure I can fully turn the front wheels. What I need to know most is that given my description, what offset and backspacing do i need?

 

Thanks in advance.

+12 or 15 on an 8 inch wide wheel is real even with fender lip.

 

Light roll with a jack handle will cure all. Tires are what will determine success or failure with your fitment.
