Wheel and Tire Data Base.

Recommended Posts

Original post was deleted by accident so a new one is started. Repost your wheel and tire combo here so we can have the list again of what fits our cars.

List wheel size with back spacing, tire size, any quarter panel trimming needed, spacers if used, airshocks if needed, spring spacers, wheel tub modifications, etc...
Also add pictures so we can get see how they look. 😎


Example:

15x7"wheels with 4" of back spacing front.
15x8" wheels with 4 1/2" of back spacing rear.
255/60/15 front tires.
265/60/15 rear tires.

Great idea! Got me wondering, how to set a data base like this up? Excel / Google Sheets? so people could search after it gets 100 entries.

If you like, I can add all STOCK data for the three years but I don't have that information.
