Well finally today I picked up my new wheels, 15 x 8" Cragars, 5 of them, brand new in pretty new Cragar boxes. Boy they sure are wrapped well. Hopefully I`ll be able to get the tyres fitted tomorrow, looking at 245x60 or 245 x 65........... any thoughts?

Great looking wheels Congratulations! cheers

I'm always in for shorter sidewalls, so I'd be going 60s for sure. But that's me.

Matman, would you have a side picture of your machine ? Just to compare with my G20.
Thanks a million.

I`m guessing by the name yours is a grey G20 and not the red one from Perth I saw here in Brissy at a meet a couple of years ago.. heres some pix of mine, before final paint and new wheels.
the other is my `84 G20 Zimmervan, a really awesome tool.. sold it a couple of years ago.
I have the old wheels and tyres from the blue one for sale.
cheers Matman
