    The late model wheels have a bolt pattern that is close but not exactly right.

      Just say "no" to the rubber bands, unless you live in the hood.

        I think I’m narrowing it down to 18/19 Rushforth wheels

          Thanks for the compliment. I fretted over wheels and tire choices for months until finally deciding on Cragars.

                Us Wheel also has 17"steelies for 4 1/2 bp. 7,8, and 9"widths. Definitely not what i would consider inexpensive.
                They do have doggie dish nubs.

                  I'd love to see photos of them on a car, my brother thinks he wants steelies on his 70 charger but interested in modern tires

                  I think the runner in post #31 probably has 17s on the back at least, maybe 15s or 17s on the front.

                  Looks like you're right! I thought radial t/a's were available bigger than 15s, but i cant find any. Tire rack lists a bunch of sizes.....but no 17s. Mea culpa.

                  I can’t believe no one else has pics of that roadrunner or knows anything about that car

                  Talk to me about your build JoeP, my next project (vaporware now, but I hope to start it in a few months) is a Dakota with a built (maybe stroked) 360
                  My favorite Mopar is the fuselage style, love your car!

                        I know the feeling. I had Cragars on my car previously but needed to get new tires. The tires I wanted (Michelin Pilot Sport 4S) were only available in the widths I wanted, 245 and 285, in 18", which Cragar doesn't make in SS so I wound up getting Torq Thrusts. I'm pretty happy with the combination. Cheers!

                        Guys, seriously....these are classic cars, not late-model Hondas from the 'hood....
                        you might want to go select a Chebby for such shenanigans.

                          I kinda like the looks of 17s on our cars, especially the torque thrusts, and daisies.
                          But i gotta agree with you about that Olds. Donk wheels on a (supposed) W30, let alone a convertible? Absolutely criminal !!
