Those "454 SS" wheels came on a few 2WD trucks in the day. Hit the junk yard man!

Bingo. I'm just wondering why my truck rims still fit without issue but these didn't. Maybe the backspacing is different or something. Mad

Because I HAVE seen them on Indy's car and so I know they fit wagons.

Let all the air out of the tires before you try to stuff them in the wheel well. That's what I had to do with my caddy wheels and vogues on the RMW. They WOULD NOT fit. Took the core out of the valve stem and stuffed them up in the wheel wells.

My problem is that they rub with the 225's. It'll only be worse with the 235's.

Its a width issue. Truck rally's are typically 15x7, as are the stock caprice rims. Backspacing on my wheels is standard rwd. If Justin runs anything wider than stock 7" he is gonna have the same issues. The remedy is to fix the wheel well the correct way or just run 7" wide rims forever.

^ This. Unfortunately.

Come spring I'm going to see if fixing my wells would screw things up noticeably.
