Lordtorkstick, what rims are these?
Image

Did they come multi stud or have you had them drilled to suit?
We had a member a while back that was looking for this exact style of rim, but they couldn't find any in 114.3 x 4.

Dave,
They are multi stud. Here is a link to the web site of the manufacturer of the wheels. http://weldracing.com/weld-draglites.html They are 15x8 and they come in a dual use four lug pattern (4.25 and 4.50) which is what you see on the car. I choose a staggered wheel look which is a 4.50 offset on the rear with a 195x55x15 tire and i believe a 2.50 offset on the front with a 195x50x15 tire the car has been lowered roughly 2 inches and with this tire/tire configuration I have had no problems with rubbing.

The material you see on the seats is not the original material to the car. It had the lumber jack plaid originally (YACK). The material you see is what came factory in most ford ranger trucks in the late 90's. I thought the shades of grey in the material could pass as original to the car.

Great look!Welds are the prefered choice for me other than satin Centerlines for any car of the era ..
Usually the rule of thumb was/is..metallic paint colour=Welds .. or for a flat solid colour=Centerlines.
Even with all the huge,shiny,new school wheels available..u can't beat it.
If u don't know what Weldies are..u might need a drag racing history lesson.just sayin. ;-)

I own the cream one at the start of this page, in Tassie now, I was told by who I bought it off that it was originally a Queensland car and now I've seen it here, the steering wheel cover is a dead giveaway :)

Ps: I'm on my phone so I can't post pics
