70 vert the gray spoke TTIIs look great. Nice job of filling the wheel wells and setting the stance.

Default Its the stance as much as it is the wheels to get the look "right"

Lowered "old school" , cut stock coils in front , 9 inch lowering bolts on STOCK C3 rally's . Maybe its just me , but a C3 with aftermarket wheels just doesn't look right .

These are 15x8 with a 4" back spacing. Same as factory.
Tires Front 265/50/15
Tires Rear 275/50/15

Only change I made was relocating the Ebrake cable bracket from the front of the trailing arm to the top

How current were your tires made, I could only find 295/50-15 listed for 50 series BFG tires. I formerly used 265/50-15 T/A's which BFG doesn't list anymore, to the best of my knowledge.

The Tires are a bit older. I don't think they are made anymore. It is becoming harder to find much in the way of verity when it coms to 15" tires

I will soon be switching to 18" rims. There is a lot more verity in the 18's

That's why I ended up going with the 17" front and 18" rear....more options. Never was a fan of the 15" BF Goodrich tires

US Mags wheels (200S - U115 model), 245/45ZR17 front, 275/40ZR18 rears. BF Goodrich g-Froce sport comp tires on all four. I want to say 4.5" backspace on the rear, but will need to confirm that with the shop again.

Gorgeous! (But then i have a 74 L48 that's white!)

I ended up going with 17x8" front and 18x8" rear on mine. It's just easier to find good tires (and cheaper than the Goodyear's!) See a few posts above for an idea of what they look like.
