Jacky O's car is a pre-'74 chassis that has been modified to accept 275/315 combo on 17" Fuchs. The sizes and offsets do not translate to 930 chassis.

The charcoal gray painted Fuchs I am using are old school 8&12x15, tires are 225/50-15 and 345/35-15. If I can source a set of 245/50 tires that would be better on the front with 9&15 Fuchs.

I lowered the car last night, took all of 30 minutes, YES!! I'm lovin' those rear coil over shocks! No time to roll the car around and settle the suspension so that will wait for the weekend. The wife came out to the shop just after I finished and had just 5 words to say ... "THAT IS BAD ASS LOOKIN" Ha!

The wife is going to paint the crest part of the charcoal wheel caps silver, I think that will give a nice subtle contrast. We'll see.
