Last night I spent some time looking at cars on google and bing images. I found this ad for that wagon in the photo.FYI.... A 245/45-17 = ~25.7" tall.
Selling at no reserve.1981 Chevrolet Malibu Classic Wagon.Runs and drives nice. Body is straight. I have found no rust.I purchased this car two years ago in Arizona.139,210 miles on car body.2,500 mil
Between the info from that wagon and Kamloops cutlass above I think a 235/45 17 or 245/45 might look right on the front with 245/45 or 255/45 on the back. One of my friends recently took his Pontiac to a shop that does custom installs from stereos, tints and wheels. They actually tried a few different combos on his car before they found the right fit. I guess I'll try them. Maybe the wheels are tires might be a little more $$ in the end but at least I wont be stuck with stuff that wont fit. The 5660 springs should be here before the end of the week. As soon as theyre in the car goes to an alignment shop, an exhaust shop and its pretty much finished.
Then the 406 comes out of the 81 to get the oil leak fixed. After I can see how the new springs fit in the wagon I might order the same ones for the coupe. I used Hotchkis lowering springs for the back but never did the front. It sits up a little high. I guess another option would be using the dropped spindles that I just pulled out of the wagon. So tired of working on these cars. I want to be driving them.
