    While the tyres may be the same size...its the way its pulling them off, this has the requried tough attributes for a 60s chev

    Dish, Mini Tub, Guard Filling


    Needs more dish ari, would compliment the paint job nicely

    What you also need to take into consideration with this picture, is that it's taken from about half a kilometer away, just behind the boot. :p

    So perspective makes them look thinner. :rofl:

    I said slight slant, like the difference in sidewall size.

    They still look small, I'm sure you could fit bigger!

    so the current 6" of dish isnt enough? plus i had to chop my chrome strips down to fit these monsters, that and the inside is only 5mm off the chassis rail

    5mm off the chassis rail, 5mm off the 1/4 panel. so no.


    i dont think you guys realise how wide these 295's actually are... pretty sure youre not taking the size of the car into account.
