    I am sure that (as I am) there are quite a few "B" Body owners that are thinking about putting 17" wheels and tires on their cars. Thought maybe I could get those of you who have already changed over to 17" could post photos of your cars so those of us "on the fence" about it can see how they look. Wheels and tires are not cheap so we want to try and get it right the first time.
    There are a few tire/wheel sites out there that have a "wheel visualizer" so one can see how a certain brand/type/size wheel looks on their car/truck but there is nothing like seeing the "real thing".
    So again to all 17" wheel owner's, please post photos.

    Thanks

      Well I'm half 17's lol 18" rears. Obviously not a finished car either but been getting a lot of compliments about the wheel/tire fitment and stance

      Friend of mine has 17" torq thrust d's all the way around on his '69 Roadrunner, don't have any pics unfortunately but imo they're a really good looking size for b-bodies :icon_thumleft:

        That is a nice stance/wheel/tire combo on both rides.

        Wow, very nice 66coronet500. Are your wheels 7 or 8 inches wide?

              Looking sharp!! I definitely like those 17" rallyes better than the 17" "magnum 500's"

                    I just ordered 17X8 (front) and 17X9 (rear) American Racing T70R's with Nitto NT555 P255/45ZR17 & P285/40ZR17 95W I'm going to hold onto my 15" Magnum 500's but thought I'd give the car a bit of a different look and stance for a change. I'll post pics once they're on next week

                      I've got a set of 15" Magnums on my 67 Coronet R/T.
                      If I goto a 17" wheel what size do I need from both a width and back spacing point of view.

                      Nothing wrong with Wookie316's car very nice car. But would love to see some more third Gens with 17s on them would help me decide when it comes wheel time for me.

                      Wheels

                      Love the look on your coronet. Is the suspension stock and what offset are the rims?
