Default New paint on car

Just got the car back. Still some little things to take care of but really pleased with the results so far. I ordered Rushforth Superspokes with brushed centers and polished lip in 19 and 20. That 300 SRT has a 20 on it and looks massive compared to the 17. I hope I didn't make a mistake. I hope once the car is sitting on them and tucked it will be alright.

Looks really good. I'd say your wheel choice and sizes are going to look sick!

I am torn. Kentucky roads suck for the most part and I want it to ride nice. I first choose 245/35/19 fronts and 305/35/20 for the rear but that means the front doesn't have much sidewall so I think I am going to do the Foose 71 Chevelle sizes in 255/40/19 front and a 295/40/20 rear.

My suspension is stock with small block springs with spacers. I will replace all 4 corners and go with dropped springs all around. Some kind of tubular supension kit. Haven't decided yet and QA shocks. I hope it looks ok now until I can make the rest of the changes.

Those are some tall rear tires. I know what you mean about the ride quality w/ short sidewalls. For the shocks try checking out Varishocks. Heard good things about them. Some guys prefer them over the QA1's. Don't know what your budget is but give SC & C a call for suspension stuff. They have some good deals for A bodies. They're also a site sponsor. Good luck on the rest of your build.
