Default Finally got to put on new wheels




Here's an updated spin on the classic Cragars. I like the sporty look they give the car. Removing the brackets/caliper for 2 coats of POR 15, primer and paint was a pain but I like the final look with the wheels.

Wow, Ren!

Those look tough! A similar attitude to some of the later XJR wheels.

Thanks for sharing!

I like em, and they do fit the look of the car... but, it sits too high. The car has to come down a bit to make it all fit like a proper British suit with strategically chosen sneakers.

Thanks for the comments. It looks like it is sitting higher but in reality it's only 11/4" taller. The illusion of more height is due to the slant of the driveway and I had just taken the car off the stands and it had not settled yet.
