The rims that you see above I had custom made. They are basically a wagon wheel style but powder
coated black which is not readily available. Also in order to move the rear wheels outward so that the fender flares would
look correct I had the rear rims made with a custom back spacing, the distance from the mounting part of the rim to the inside
The front rims are 15x7's with a standard backspacing and the rear rims are 15x8's with a 2" backspacing.
Is this correct? I don't know. Exactly what the rims and tires are on the car in the movie, pertaining to sizes, is still
a matter of debate.
The tires are BF Goodrich Radial TA's, the same model as the ones on the movie car though about a
4th generation design. My front ones are 215/60R15's and the rears are 235/60R15's. Again this is still open to conjecture
and many replicas have 295 wide tires on the rear and 245's on the front. I will know better how my car will look after the
fender flares are on.
