1974 chevy. Ova
being nova owners, you all know what a pain it is to get wheels/tires on a budget to fit on the rear of the car. Friday i got a call from my dad, he told me (while shopping for a pair of used tires for my truck) he found a guy with slicks...3 passes. M/T 28*9-14's. so we got them. then he calls one of his buddies to see if he's got a pair of 14*8 or so rims for the back. he's got some "rocket" wheels. an older 5-spoke. they look a lot like cragars. anyway...no measuring or mock up to check, just mount the tires and the fit. perfectly. last year's slicks (27*10-15's) on 7" wide pontiac steelies just barely fit under the car and forget going around a corner. We couldn't have bought custom wheels to fit better...it blew my mind that finally, on the cheap and in a hurry something actually worked out RIGHT! of course, the races got rained out by the time i got home, but i'd rather have wheels to fit all summer than race opening night.
