11.5" Widened Stock wheels came in

These just came in today from weldcraft wheels.com Total price for new wheels, shipping, and widending was just under $900, and I have not bought tires yet!

They are stockers widened 2" to 11.5




I will be putting a 345 MT drag on them. Based on how I've seen their 315s fit a 9.5" wide wheel, I think the 345s will fit an 11.5 wheel just fine, even though the rim is .5" narrower than recomended.

I will have to make a few mods to the wheel well for these to fit, there is bracket that needs to be moved, and I'll have to ditch the shock dust cover. Swaybar might interfere, we'll see. It will be several weeks before I have time to work on this.

Re: 11.5" Widened Stock wheels came in

Are these wheels available for purchase or do I have to send them out myself...do they offer a swap out deal?

Re: 11.5" Widened Stock wheels came in

Here are stock wheels, widened to 11" with 315/30/18 Nittos mounted. Anything wider will require body mods as this fits with about 3/16" total clearance and requires an adjustable panhard bar to get the rear centered for proper clearance on both sides. But they do fit perfectly without any rubbing or other problems.

Re: 11.5" Widened Stock wheels came in

Hey on this blue shelby, where did u get the hood pins? And also what panhead did u get and how is it adjusted. Im very novice on suspension so when i put the 315s on i need to lknow what to do. Also im thinkin about usin 20s instead of 18 so id go with a 315 35 20. Any suggestion if that will fit or not. This whole subject has driven me nuts. Any help would be great!
