1980 Pontiac LeMans Station Wagon - G-T-faux (stuck with it, and can't shake it... like a bad case of herpes)

I love that you are using the car and I'm glad you kept it. Sean and I want a wagon, bad.

Let me know what you want. I have 3 of them, all Malibu's
Thanks. It will have to stay on the wish list for awhile. We're saving to build a house and a shop further away from the big city.

17x9.5s front on 275/40R17s (really want to go down to a 245) and 17x11s rear on 345/40R17 (going down to a 325/45 probably). Both sets of wheels have 5.375" back spacing out of the box. The fronts have special .375" hub centric spacers and a 1/8" shim OEM F-body spacer, the rears are as-is.
TY sir. I thought & was correct on the front size but was wrong on the rears. I figured 335/35 rears but knew that sidewall looked taller.

Glad you hung on to it. Seems it's handy to have (especially w/the TBSS on hiatus).

NP. Hellcat was supposed to replace the TBSS... but, yeah I don't hate the wagon. Just too many money pits.

Swapped out the ZQ8 bump stops on the wagon for the tall boys. It seemed to help a bit with the tires rubbing at speed over bumps.
