Assuming you're lookin for spacers for slicks and skinnies... (I know Turk, I know) For your application, I'm not too sure on how much you need let alone what back spacing your wheels are.... But once you get that info you can get spacers all over the place.

You'll need longer studs too, just throwing that out there.

I can understand that, but 11.5" on 8" with the low profile required to keep the tire @ 26" is going to make for some less than ideal sidewall action...

would you rather do this setup or 2 GTO rims on 275/40/17" MT ET Streets DRs? for half the price?

No way, I've got the 11.5" tire on a 15x10" rim and it sits just like that...

I'd rather the GTO wheels @ 1/2 the price fo sho. No questions.

Not to mention, I REALLY don't like the looks of those rims... not sure why, but I just don't like em. That's just my $.02 tho.

I run the same tire. It has its ups and downs, but should work pretty good on his setup.

GET READY FOR THE BOG!

Hopefully that converter of yours doesn't spit itself out on the pavement!

I'd do the 275's and hope for a little spin to help you out of the hole.

What tire are you on now?

imho i'd avoid these if possible!
H&R had some nice offerings...the thick plates that bolt to your wheels and have their own studs built into it...German TUV approval. ;)

And on the new converter what results are you getting?
