vegatex: questions about your wheels

Colin,

Nope-- just bolted 'em on without
spacers. They have almost 3.8" backspacing and are 6.75
offset. Once I got my front sub-frame re-aligned,(car was
wrecked last year; LONG STORY) there is no rubbing on the
front. I actually like them better than the old IROC's
because they look more modern. Look totally different
than when on an S-10 with the lower profile tires. Got
the idea from a PST Suspension project Chevelle I saw
in Super Chevy that was running them.

Dave

Monza 10-bolt housing with 28-spline Moser custom
rear axles, 3.42 S-10 gearset, and a '98 Camaro Torsen
rear diff. Brakes are 12" with aluminum calipers off a
'98 S-10 Blazer. Tires are 205-55R-15's all around.
Could have obviously gone bigger in the back, but I
wanted the same tire diameter as the old 14's so I
wouldn't have to change speedo gears. 225-50's will
definately work!
