I never sell thye stocks either, unless its to upgrade to another set of stocks. I have all my stock rims and tires stacked in my garage. I usually take the bigger wheels off in the winter anyway.

Any plans on what you're going to do? Try a different tire?
I am gonna go for a set of 305/25/22 TOYO with a 99 load rating.
I've always wanted some 305's on this car anyway.

Nice!! Can't wait to see how it will look, I'm thinking of going slimmer I. The front for the next set of tires since I rub when turned all the way left or right.

Excellent advise TXStyle. Unfortunately I didn't keep a close eye on mine and had a blowout on the highway about a year and a half ago. Luckily no one was hurt.

Absolutely. I see you had tons of good tread also. What kind of tires?

Just a heads up. The 305/25/22 Toyo looks narrower then you would think.

My shop recommended a camber kit for the rear wheels when they installed the springs. I didn't think it was as expensive as the one listed. I don't recall what brand it was but it was under $150.

Rolling "factory" for a minute...

Fortunately... These are IMO some if the best stock wheels offered on any car.
