    I totally expect to get sh!t for it but I don't care. Rolling 22s on my 68 Newport. Ride sucks. But I love the look regardless of the haters.

    It's a free country (I think), do as you like.

    Riddlers, 18x8 front and 20x10 rear. Ride isn’t too bad. Gets a lot of looks.

    I think those look great John. Looks like they tuck behind the inserts without a problem. What backspacing and offset did you use? I'm thinking 17 inch wheels for my '68 NY hardtop. Can't decide on style yet, but it's hard to go wrong with a nice set of five spokes like yours.

    Jim, I’ll have to check. There is some rubbing but only when pulling across a deep driveway entrance.

    Thanks. Based on reading a lot of other posts, I think the right way to go (for me, anyway) might be a 17x7 with 4.5 inches of backspacing and 0 offset. So, when I see someone with a nice set like yours that looks like it fits well, I always ask. Thanks again.

    Just remember for a 17x7 a zero offset equates to a 4" backspace. I would comment on fitment but mine is 69 fury so slightly different

    How bad is the ride? Does it keep you from driving a long distance? Would your body be comfortable driving 500 miles?

    I agree, I wish they made them with dedicated bolt pattern.
