Rims and Tires for the 1932 Ford Roadster

It’s been some time since my last post, I’ve been hard at work with my 60 Corvette and not spending much time on building the Ford Roadster. I have hit a few milestones, one being the most important.. We have rim and tires on the roadster!!! YAHOOOO!! glad to get rid of those roller rims and tires! Check out the photo of the roadster, tell me what you think.. Rims are American Racing Torque Thrust II, 15×6 Front and 17×9.5 in the rear with 3.75 offset in the rear, to give a deeper dish look. The tires are BF Goodrich 195/60 R15 and 275/60 R17. I already know that I want to get a little thicker tire in the rear, so I’ll use these tires to break in the roadster (hint: smoke) and buy a thicker tire down the road, something like a 325/60 R17. Another milestone was the final order of the parts for the stroker. Here’s the full breakdown of all the good internal stuff going into the 32 Ford Roadster‘s engine:
