    Right on man. You're going to love the look. It takes the classic look of Torq Thrust wheels and puts a nice edge on it...

      I tried the Nitto 555s on my Bee last year thinking it was an upgrade from the Federal tires I had for 10 years and they tracked terribly.
      They caught every groove and crack in the road , even felt scary at times , felt like 4 flat tires . Went back to the Federal 555s I had before and back to 1 finger steering and precise cornering/drifting. I don't IMG_0214.JPG know what was wrong with them , but more money doesn't always mean better.

        Pricing on the Nittos were almost the same as what I paid for the BFGs. Got a deal on the Nittos as a package with the wheels. The BFGs are no longer stocked locally as not a lot of people request them now (5+ years ago, yes), so pricing isn't exactly on the cheap and I had to pay to ship them originally. And sometimes you just have to try things out first hand to see how they work...

        Hey pro451bee I love the stance of your car.
        What wheel and tire sizes are you running?
        Did you have any fitment issues?
        TIA

            Yeah, with the right rim backspacing they'll fit... But currently the only 315" available are 315/35-17's & those are way to short for a B body....

            These are 315/45-17 but they aren't produced anymore my wheels.jpg

              @1 Wild R/T , you had better hold onto those daisies/ 200s too. I went shopping for the new daisies or T70Rs and it looks like they aren't available anywhere. American racing doesnt even have them on their site.They look discontinued to me. Damn shame , lose two are my favorite wheel of all time, and now it looks like they are gone again!

                Wild, I think I know what happened. I was searching for the one-piece daises with the machined lip. It is a different series than the two piece.
                (Also, looking at the summit list...since when is a 15x12 cheaper than a 15x7?)

                I like that 67 too, but can't find any info on it (just that one pic). I'd like to know what size wheels and tires those are.

                    @Larrry B. Love your new wheel/tire combo (but then I really liked the steelies/doggies too). Americans, US, or somebody else's wheels?
                    Edit: nevermind (in Rosanna Rosannadanna voice) just saw the previous post. DOH!
