What size tires were used?

What is the offset on the wheels?

How close to rubbing are you in the rear wheel wells?

How many angels fit on the head of a pin?

I really like the design of those wheels. Always have since seeing the 17's on Tim Swink's car.

Holy crap, all it took was new shoes for Mac to come back!

The tires are 255 40 20. I'll let him chime in with the rest of the specs, he did his homework.

The wheels are Ridler 695 - 20x8.5 / Offset:0 / Hub: 83.82 / Finish: grey-machined and the SKU is W18359. I purchased them from CanadaWheels.ca for $239 (CDN) each and if your nice to them on the phone they'll throw in the hardware for free. Hardware includes looking bolts and rings, which they used.

The tires are Yokohama, Parada Spec X, 255/45R20, All Season HP and the SKU is T19047.

Everything fits, no clearance issues. But they where a bit of a learning experience for the youngsters at Kal Tire to fit the rears under the skirt. Passenger side was no problem with the help of a bottle jack, but drivers side was done on the ground with a jack because they didn't feel comfortable being too close to the brake lines.

rides high compared to my SS wheels, but it is sooooooo sweet.

I'l have more pics next week after it gets a little more TLC.

Hey MacWoody

Didn't you buy this wagon many many years ago from Fred? Looks good.

I did. Bought the Caprice Classic from Fred after WagonFest in the summer to 2009. I've been nice to it over the years, no winters and now that I'm on the West coast I use it sporadically all year round. Only has 104K miles on it, so I hope to have it for awhile.

CORRECTION: Tires are 255/40/20 = 28.0 in diameter which is really close to stock: 225/75/15 = 28.3 in.

Of course, jayoldschool was right about what I bought. Smile

Yokohama Parada Spec X, 255/40R20, All Season HP and the SKU is T19047.

sorry for the wrong tire spec, but now that they are on and looking fine i can't even remember what i purchased. Looking at these wheels makes be forget everything i was worried about....

cheers all,

I used them! Sustained temps below 7C. Plus they got dumped on this year.

I'd be interested in picking up the wheels if you aren't going to use them. Trade for a 3.23 gear/reluctor + tune maybe ?
