I would probably buy 17x8 like the Centerlines I have. They seem to fit nicely and don't look too "modern". I think Gary's/Hutch's are 18"?
Correct. They're 18x8's

I'm starting to get my engine parts in order for the build up. The pistons are 2g from lightest to heaviest. I plan to balance them to 0.1g of each other. Gotta break out the rods and do the same balance (prob to 1g of each other bigs and littles).

I guess I can start on the brakes now too, now that I'll have wheels to fit them (guess I should buy some tires first :rolleyes:)
