Need to see your narrow body's stance

I know there are 100+ pages of pictures of great looking stances from the other thread but there are just too many pages to look through but I'd like to just have all the narrow body G Bodies here.
Please post pictures, plus wheel and tire sizes also.

Normal n/b is 4 x6x15 ET36 w/ 185/70 tires
sportier is
4x 7x15 ET23.3 w/ 195/65 tires

+1 from that is 205/60 tires

an extreme Fuchs is 7ET23.3 front an 8 ET23.3 rear oe Fuchs limit this to x16 and the tires have to be very selectively chosen

factory had a 7ET49 wheel but it has too much back space and has to be used w/ a spacer to get b/s below 6", 21mm spacer is the most common size. Better to to get custom o/s wheels

I have 4 15x7 Cookie Cutters, do you think I could run 15x7's up front with 225 tires also (I'm not afraid to roll the crap out of those fenders)?

The nice thing about 15s is that they are short, you can probably run 225/50 on the 7ET23.3 Cookies, they do stick out to the edge of the danger zone but they are also so short that at most ride heights it's ok

4 205/50/16 BF Goodrich G Force Sport Comp 2 on 7" Fuchs. 6mm spacer on rears. I like the lowered look of the car plus the added acceleration of the smaller diameter tire. Having 7" all around allows easy rotation.

Great looking car, Paul. Looks like it needs to be driven. And driven.

Stance looks PERFECT Paul, thanks for posting. Do you have pictures that show how the tires looks widthwise, from along side of car, 3/4 and rear?
And did you have the fenders rolled?

I never knew the Trofeo R's could be an option and thanks for pointing them out.
AND... they aren't too expensive at all when compared to the same tire in 20" and 21" sizes ($700+ per tire )

Bli8 and RedCoupe,
Thanks for the compliments. Ol Yeller has 197,000 miles on it, incl 95,000 on the modded engine.
I have rolled the rear wheel arches.

Rear View. I'll see if I can get one that shows tire width.

You have flared fenders in the back though. Correct?

So you changed from a 205 to a 245 in the rear?! I remember this post from last year where you stated you MIGHT be able to fit a 225 in the rear, let alone a 245?! Can you elaborate?

Photos of 15x8s on my narrow body '74
