Wasn't convinced till I saw the new wheels with whitewalls, that I like.



 
 
Question about your backspace issue-  Were there different versions of the road wheels, or was this a problem even back in the '70s?
 
I am not sure.  The 74/75/76 New Porkers had road wheels, but I don't have any measurements.  Mine came from a 76 or 77 Cordoba.

Sharp wheels! They'd look really cool with Red-Line tires like on some
of the old Wide Ovals - remember those?  Back in the dinosaur age
of pre-radial tires? Way back when we got our license?? Back at the
Dawn of Time??? I think they make  them on radials now... or, the
slim line 1/2 whitewalls are cool too - too wide, and they look like
something on old '50s Buick Roadmasters... think sporty!

clean, simple, classy... nice! The WWs give the visual appearance of a larger wheel without any of  the drawbacks... time to stock up on Bleche White - (most of these guys won't even know what that is... I put in many an hour cleaning Dad's whitewalls on his '67 Fury III!)

3M Scotch-Brite sponges werk wonderfully on white walls.  They last a while too, much longer than SOS pads.  I'll see if I have a spare around here since I owe someone a package anyhow.

Did those wheels solve the offset problem?  They are SHARP and look great on Polaraco.

Yessir.  Looking at them in 3D (Real life) they sit much better in the wheel wells.  The road wheels had a 4.5" spacing, these are 4".  It's amazing what the style and a 1/2" will do.
 
I'll see if I have a before shot and post two comparisons for you.

Steve, do a 3/4 shot with the front wheel slightly turned.
 They look awesome.
They really do wake up  the car 's appearance.Very good choice!!
