    Hi everyone,
    I am a new user here and I am looking for some information and possibly pictures of a G body fitted with 16" or 17" wheel and tire combo's. I've been told that the 78 Monte can fit 15x7, 16x7 and 17x7 wheels. I am getting close to outfitting my 78 Monte with new wheels. At this point I like the Torq-Thrust II's and the American Racing Hopster. If someone would have a picture of them fitted under a car would be great! I am very open to any ideas on other wheels also.

    Thanks everyone, Mark[/img]

    I just saw the pictures of tony-ss and his 79 Monte with 17's, very nice

    I was thinking about putting some tuner style wheels on my car in the 17 to 18 inch area. Trouble is they are kind of hard to find any good looking ones that have the same bolt pattern.

    by tuner do you mean import? ah no just look around and you'll find what you need. be careful about the back spacing, width, and material.

    He's probably talking about 'Boze' style wheels. I've seen it done an it looks good.. its a nice clean modern wheel that works well on 35 or 40 series tires.

    For wheels, look at the f-body wheels on at Group A wheels. Complete set of 4 - $799.00 for 17 x 8.5 with no rubbing issues.
