I stopped in Sears tonight, and they have a set of 15 X 7 ARE Torq-Thurst D's that they just took off a Jeep, use one day. Regular price $177.95 NOW $79.00 each. They Jeep owner wasn't happy with them, so they sold her another set. I always thought once a tire was mounted, the rim was yours... Anyway they are holding them for me until I get off work tomorrow. First question, will I have any probs with them fitting? They said I might have to go with a low profile tire, but i'd perfer a beefier lookin' tire. Second question, What is the widest tire I can use? 70/60/55, etc.?

I'll probably think of a few more questions later into the night, LOL!!!

THANKS!!!

Stop thinking and RUN to Sears right now and pick up those wheels. If you don't like them, you can easily sell them for what you'll have invested, and probably more.

I searched forever 2 years ago to find my TTD's at $135/each. Mine are 15x7s with 225/60s in back and 215/60s in front with a 1" lowered front end and no rubbing problems. I am always complimented on these wheels as they are awesome looking wheels.

$#!+ they close 3 minutes ago!!!! But I went to high school with the guy that said he'd hold them for me, so they will be there (hopefully!). And at that price center caps, valve stems, and lug nuts too!!!!!

I just remembered. The Jeep owner didn't like the weights on the outside of the rim, and wanted them on the backside. He said to balance it right, they need to be on both sides. To dark for me to look now, but is that the way it is??? LOL!

I hope he holds them for you ... my $135/each did not include vavle stems or lugs (center caps were included, though)! That's one hellofa deal. Get there quick in the morning!

You're going to pee in your pants when you see those wheels on your car for the first time /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

Have the exact same combo on my 68 Fastback. Great looking wheels on a mustang. Got mine for $500 including two good tires.

I have the TTD on X-tremestang (15 x 7) and with the front fender lips folded in and front end lowered, I have 225 60R15 BFG tires mounted (this using 70 Boss spindles and 11.3 disc rotors). In the rear, the 9 inch has been narrowed about 3/4 inch on each side (using Maverick 28 spline axles). With the Shelby 2.5 inch drums, I have a 255 60R15 BFG mounted to the TTD. The lips in the rear have also been folded completely into blend in with the fender outline....
