Since the first time I laid eyes on a set of these wheels I knew I had to have them. Well that time has finally come. My biggest issue with the fronts was always wanting to run a BBK instead of a set of drag brakes to make these work. Then there’s the issue of them not making them in our bolt pattern etc.

Anyways onto what everyone came here for

fronts are 18x6 3.2 back spacing in a 5x4.5 bolt pattern. Running a 225/65/18 Goodyear radial.
Brakes are the 6piston wilwood 14inch setup from TCE performance. Big shout out to Todd for all the help with this to make sure I absolutely couldn’t squeeze the 15 inch kit in lol

rears are 15x12 double beadlocks. Not sure I’ll be staying with this rear tire long but it is a 390

Beautiful! These have been at the back of my list for a while, my next drag set up. Where’d you get your hubs done?
started with a set from aerospace components and then had some custom cut work done to them to save some more weight as they are still extremely beefy

Got another piece of window dressing in the mail today. Weld was very specific on this needing a 60 degree conical lug nut. I sourced a set of titanium open ended lugs in black to match.

that tire looks fantastic. I’ll dial the tires in more once this thing starts running again and I still got a long way to go for that.

I tell people all the time, I’ll never complain about buying tires, if I’m going through tires that means I’m driving my vehicles!
thats a very good point
