Default New Wheels

15" TrueSpoke Wire Wheels
215/75R15 American Classic Radials.

Because Front Drums have weights, I had to put 5/16" wheel spacers in the front. I had to make sure that I had at least 5 full threads on the lugs. I have 6. I most likely will find a machine shop to help me replace the lugs with longer lugs to be 100% sure for safety reasons, but for now, with the local driving (very little if any highway) I should be OK with the current lugs, tightened to 80 ft-lbs. There should be enough thread to hold.

I also removed the fender skirts to show.
