        Beng cop wheels, I guess donut would be appropriate.

              I think if you are going to run a full wheel cover any advantage of the cop car wheels would go away. You could probably sell them on ebay, get a set of regualr wheels and have change left.

              On the other hand if you have or are going to have disc brakes and want a build a road racer they look great with fat blackwalls and dog dish caps.

                Fat black tires with dog dish caps is what I had in mind.

                  Are they 6.5 or 7.0 inches wide? If they're 7's, you may have some clearance on the rear depending on what size tire you use. Trial and error on fitment. Ask me how I know. The car pictured below has 8"ers front and rear. Had to do a small amount of fender lip work front and rear, but it's not noticable. Tire size is 225/70/15. No tire to fender contact any where on or off the track. Good luck with your project.

                    Wheels are 7 inch. What size tires do you think will be best to avoid clearence problems? I don't need to ask you how you know about this, hope your trial and error will help me. Thanks Irv

                      Irv,
                      I have a sneeky hunch your wagon may have less clearance in the rear than my Challenger. Most people commonly use the 6" Ford rims that have a "close to stock" off-set. Unfourtinately that wheel, Kelsey- Hayes (now Hayes-Lemmerez(sp))#X40273 was discontinued aprox. 2 yrs ago. There are other wheels that will work, just watch for the correct off-set. The most commonly used radial tire is a 205/75/15. On your 7" wheels you might make a 215/70/15 fit, but it might take a little "metal massageing" for clearance. Go to your tire store and rummage through their scrap tire bin for a size you want to try, mount it up and bolt it on. I would sure do that before I bought new tires only to find out they won't fit.[xx(] Let me know your outcome. For some more pictures, go to the top of page 2 of Members Pictures.
