Anyone use photoshop? I am looking to see what a set of caprice lace wheels would look like on my truck.

Here is a pic of the inside and the little 305 to keep the poor old thread alive.

............ Lace wheels with wide whites, tucked under the ext cab will look awesome. the green paint will pop more with aluminum rims

I will probably drop it 3" all around. I like the raked look. Not sure on tires yet, may put some 275/60/15s on it, so might just be a blackwall.

That's a pretty wide tire for those skinny lace wheels. Wink

I do have a set of those lace wheels, if you want. They are kinda rough, but round. Smile

I had that size on my Fleetwood wheels, and they fit good.

I am interested in them Billy, but I want to see if they would even look good before I do it. Shoot me a PM or text with a price if you get a
chance please.

275s cheers

A wise man once said... "Just because it fits, doesn't mean it looks good..." Razz

Keep in mind, that's coming from a guy who ran 295/50's on an 8" wheel. lol.

The lace wheels, they are ugly. I have no pics. But they are free to you if you want to pick them up. Wink

I still have to get a normal sized pair of Indy 500s because of those, LOL

Billy, if you lowered that thing and put some bigger sized wheels, like 18" all the way around, with a wide tire, it'd look awesome.

LOL. No way. I actually love this truck. It does everything I need it to, and I get decent fuel mileage. Besides, If we get the house we are
Looking at, I am going to need it. Wife said once we move, I can get another b-body, as long as I keep the truck. cheers

I meant the wheels...
Im keeping this pig for a while.
Im tired of getting low ball offers for something I put alot of money into fixing.
I might as well keep it going in the right direction.

I love it Tim. Thanks. The front looks like the Colorado Customs "Valdez" wheel. I guess that is why I have alway liked that wheel on a Impala ss.
