    time to collect shoot out parts...

    So it is getting close to the shoot out... does anyone need any parts that I could bring to the shoot out?? or does anyone else want to jump in here and put together some deals?? this is one way to save shipping and help out the rest of us... So how about it?? who needs what?? if anything???....Rich
    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..

    Aftermarket Wheels

    (4) American Racing 17" wheels with 245/45/17 Nitto NT555 tires, they are t-bird bolt pattern and 17"x7.5". You can see there is some cosmetic feathering on them being 245 tires on a 7.5" rim. Make me an offer. Thanks Scott.

    I don't think that's dry rot. I cant tell in the pics, but are you running 255's on them? My Sumitomo's were manufactured a month before I bought them and had cracking in the exact same spots almost right away. 255/45/17 on a 7.5" rim. I think the stress of the wide tread, narrow rim, thin wall, and heavy car does that. I was told by the tire shop that the cracks were just cosmetic. Weather or not that's true, idk. But, ive been running them like that for 3 years now with no issues.

    Thanks for the heads up about them possibly being cosmetic and caused by the narrow rim stress, they are 245/45/17's. I too have been driving on them with no issues till I came across a new set of rims that I wanted.

    Anyone looking for Mark 8 LCAs, pumpkin or maybe spare wheels? The junkyard I went to today had a pair of Marks that seemed to have all that stuff, but I didn't have the tools to remove it (and without a magnet to check the spares, I wasn't going to gamble on them being steel).

    I'll have to see what they're going to charge me before I can give you a price. Right now I'm thinking I'll go get them next Saturday. If you want, I'll give you first dibs.
