Messages - Steve McDonald Formally known as Mcdonas

Almost 50 years of SAAC history will be in Millville in less than 60 days. Be prepared to see more than you expect. If you want to make your experience more memorable volunteer to help. You'll have the greatest experience, help others have a great time and possibly meet everyone at the convention
Volunteer and help make history
Works on a 66 also

Ordered direct from Kelsey Tire on their web site. The look is similar to a period correct Goodyear Ployglas but is a modern radial
Rode smooth, handles well, even good in the rain

I drove almost 1,000 miles on the recent Cobra Tour on the new Goodyears and have to say I really like the ride and handling. The only issue is when turning with the wheel,turned to lock the barely rubs the inside of the frame rail. I don't have the steering stops installed at this time as I just haven't installed since Shelby Parts and Restoration redid them so it might become a non issue.
Smooth, quiet and handle well. For me they are well worth the price
Geezers, but driving the coolest cars.

the screws and plastic inserts are original on 6S1431 and look like the ones in the photo, except mine are a lot more crusty looking
1431 and 1855 were black

Jay is right, volunteer and you will more people than you ever meet by just walking around. It's a lot of fun, only takes a few hours out of the day and it will help make the convention better for all. You may even meet Jay Tabolt's "Prius driving Brother", now that a real celebrity.

No, they are a close replica wheel. I have the original wheels with repo Goodyear BlueStreak's (6:95-14) on them. They look great but are really terrible to drive with.
I think the wheels are the same offset as the original Magnum 500's but I'll have to check. the tires have about 1/2"-5/8" clearance between the tire and the ball joint.   They seem to clear both the front and rear fender lips (non-modified). It looks like in a tight turn at high speeds the front tires might just have interference between the tire and the fender lip. I really don't push it as I am not a really fast drive so for me it may not cause any issues.

So what's on the odometer now, Steve?  I'm looking forward to the 250,000 mile countdown too. I expect regular updates.
