    I like those. What do you think Carl? Would they look good on my Dad's Ranchero?

    I think I will be buying those. However, is it one of those,...'too good to be true' deals? My only worry is that the rims and tires are Chinese forgeries of American Racing wheels and BF Goodrich tires.

    Hey, lay off that red pile, that's all she could afford (although steel wheels and hubcaps would look better)...:D

    Your dad could repaint the centers to match the truck.

    I would also be OK with flat black to match the hood.

    Yeah, I saw that. I just wonder if they'll shatter the first time some torque is applied to them.
    You didn't answer my other question; should I get the bigger rear, smaller front package, or the same all around?

    Agreed. I'm buying them today and should be posting pictures of the car with them mounted next week.
    Thanks Huevos, for the heads up. You just passed that other Huevos in useful posts (him having none).

    I for one like the bigger ones in the rear of the car, as I'm having 245/275 now and going 315 rear soon, all 20" so a mix of the 70's and the 2000's rolleyes::cool:
    What did you buy? the all 225's or what.
    I have some of the china wheels chrome ones, just started "bubeling" just by sitting, all chrome is Fu¤%ed now. does not help that they are cheap.
    The 20" rim's are very nice quality but expensive rim's too:rolleyes:

    Here is another good place to buy name brand wheels and tire packages.
    WheelsForLess.com They offer free mounting and balancing including shipping. They are out of Texas.
    I am looking at a set for my '71 Ranchero, What is the largest size to fit? 15x7 in front and 15x8 in the rear?
    I think the tire size on the 15's would be 215/65 R15

    215's would be way too narrow....

    Absolutely to small at least 235 and 255 but 245 front and 275 rear are just right, my opinion that is :D:cool:
