Anyone run these. They are pretty cheap. Would they fit on a 2nd gen with stock width rear end. Image

Damn I like those. I've got Summits on mine and I don't think Jegs house brand is half bad.

What size front and rear do you want to run?

I just looked up the part # since the pic is too big.

Go with 8" wheels with some 275/60/15 tires and they will tuck nicely

I have 275/60/15 nitto’s on some old cragars didn’t realize a 8” would be wide enough.

I was thinking 17's on the front but haven't seen any pictures.

8" wheel is what most people use for the 275's, work just fine.

I'll put some pictures up of mine

1st gen and 2nd gen tuck about the same. If I lower mine more it will tuck, hard to tell by this angle. 4.5" BS, "5.5 would put it too close to the spring and frame

You should be ok with 5.5 bs. I have 5.5 bs on my Boyds and they are 17X9.5...lots of room

I'm about to pull the trigger on their star wheels. Same thing you did, 17's in the front and 15 rear. Hard to find pics of it on a 1st gen but the bigger front wheel looks real good

What front tires did you go with? Looks damn good.

Size the pictures to 640x480 and they will fully show
