congratulations!
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road

Hi 427 Hunter,

Is the tire size 235-60R14's front and back?  They look good.  The rear tires look bigger.  Are they 245-60R14's.  Any clearance issues?

Take care

Cory
