Off my buddy's Camaro, I think it's too wide :). I will borrow some wheels and see how they fit plus I will try my 8" off my 57 Chev wagon.

I like the white wheels so I think they will stay, also trying to keep this build under 10K. The whole car sits too high, very easy for an old guy to get out. I might get a 4"(?) dropped front axle to drop the car and put the diff back on top of the springs have a 2" higher front stance. It's going into storage this winter so I can work on the 57 Chev wagon.
