Got some nice new wheels and tires..

Got a great deal on them-they are VS wheels. 18x8 up front and 18x10 out back. Never mind the front centercaps I am making spacers for them so they clear.
Tires are MT SR radials 26x10 up front and 28x12 out back.

The new wheels look great. I think you should include a photo of the engine. It had nothing to do with the new wheels. I just like to look at it.

Those wheels give the car a nice stance. BTW what are the rear axle details?

Great choice, I like the look a lot, I would black out the side pipes with a gun metal grey color as well to finish the look.
Over all it looks great

Riggs.

Looks good. I agree with Riggs painted headers might look good.

How do you like driving/racing the car with the new 4 link?

Thanks alot guys.
I definately want to get the headers coated-I agree totally.
I haven't drove the car yet with the 4 link-car was on jackstands for 8 + months and she just got on the ground yesterday.
Have small punch list before I fire her up again.
