That's a bit of tire.

Yea in reality it wouldn't last long under the car just put them on for shits and giggle's to see if they would actually fit (technically they do and dont touch anywhere within 1.5") BUT still to much tire will be going way down in size

More Progress on the Chevelle today I installed the new door that I have been working on and I will be dammed if it didn't fall one time and scratch it (after 2 round's of blocking) So when I got it all smoothed out I had to put the Etching primer Where I blocked thru the Primer surfacer to Bare Metal, Well will post more when I do more Thanks for Viewing

HEAVY DOORS VERY HEAVY

Back in the day I used a Coleman Lantern. LEDs are cheap enough these days.

The cold is another matter however
