    Hello, has anyone ever put baby moons on their ride? I'm in an '85 Bonneville with the original wheels, I believe they are 10 1/8" nubs. Does anybody have a recomendation on where to get a set? I know Mr. Gasket sells a set with very mixed reviews, but they are cheap (working on a college student budget). I realize this is probably the wrong thread for this, but I couldn't find much else on wheels.

    305 45 17 installed no frame notch or tub, just cut the lip in the rear wheel wells, and it is the same diameter as a 275 60 15! I know it's an old thread just wanted to update :)
    Oh and I have 17x9.5 wheels, with 5.5" backspace running 1 1/4" adapters so I have the ability to do my 8.8 swap in the future

    Horner, I have a set of 17 x 9.5's with 275/40's on them that I would love to mount on my 83 Monty. Are you running the 5.5 BS on the front end too?

    Is anyone running 17 x 9.5 Vette wheels? Will a 9.5 wide wheel fit on the front of an 83 Monte SS?

    85 Regal
    17x7 wheels all around
    4.00" BS
    235/45R17 Tires
    No issues at all and couldn't be happier with the setup. Most likely lowering in the future.

    Hey there, I'm looking for some bigger wheels for my '85 regal. (Aka princess vagina)

    Something that will fit the muscle car style I'm going for and won't look bad on matte black.

    The wheels I got going on right now are waay too small.[​IMG]
