Rims

I'm looking for new rims for my 1988 LX 5.0. I like the look of Weld rims and I also want the rear end to sit a little higher than the front. Anyone know of a good website to get Weld rims and has anyone raised the rear by putting a bigger rims on the rear and keeping a 15" on the front ones?

If that's what you want I would just lower the front an 1" .then you can get the same size rims. Summit racing has a good selection of weld rims.

Yes I would search your local Craigslist for some... Average price would be around $575 for a good set with used tires.. A 275/50/15 should clear fine on. 4.5" or up to a 6.5" backspacing with a skinny 195 up front should give you a decent stance.. I have a few examples..

That's my old 93' stock suspension with the weld setup..

This is my 88' with Lakewood drag setup on it.. The 6.5" backspacing rim like this one will pull the rim and tire up under the car if you have a racing suspension.. I ran 28x11.50x15 m/t et streets..

And of course some 18" cobra rims gives it a nice stance with right tire combo..

You really don't want to oversize the diameter of your rear tires much it will throw off the speedo and be difficult to correct.

That's good advice.

Very nice, but most of our cars are 4-lug and I don't think it looks right to have a 5-spoke wheel on a 4-lug bolt pattern. Converted to 5-lug though they look great.
